Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1lordofpens, the term "combination" is sometimes a bit murky Think of a locker. The "combination" lock is really a permutation lock because order matters. Something like 347 is different from 743. And yet, somehow "combination lock" has stuck instead of "permutation lock"
