PLZ help !!! can someone plz help me solve this question. To register for online banking services at a local credit union, you need to select a four-digit personal identification number, or pin code. The digits cannot be repeated. How many ways are there to arrange four digits out of the numerals 0 through 9 to create a code?

    is this how we do it ? nᴾr = n! / (n - r)! 10ᴾ4 = 10! / (10 - 4)! 10ᴾ4 = (10*9*8*7*6*5*4*3*2*1) / ( 6*5*4*3*2*1) 10ᴾ4 = 3628800 / 720 10ᴾ4 = 5040

    lets say x is the chosen digit.....you have 10 choices for the first one, if you take that out because it is unusable, you have 9 choices for the second, 8 for the third, etc....so the total number of combinations would be 5040
