A basketball team has ten players. How many different combinations are there for a 5-layer starting line-up? If you can explain, that would be great! Medal for correct answer! :)

    Im assuming it means 5 players. So the first place is 10 to choose from the next one 9 etc.. It will therefore be 10! / (5!*5!). often written as 10 C 5
