Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.240C1 * 40C4 I think that is the answer... btw, why are you only posting counting questions?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1why not 40C1 *40C4 *5!

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Actually, I think you might be right! 40C1 *40C4 *5!

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.4when a captain is chosen, there will be 39 left so shouldnt it be 40C1*39C4

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Alternative : You can choose 5 ppl for the team in \(\dbinom{40}{5}\) ways for each of that 5 member team, a captain can be chosen in \(\dbinom{5}{1}\) ways so total possible teams = \(\dbinom{40}{5}*\dbinom{5}{1}\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.4Since the arrangement inside the group is not relavant 5! is not required

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2then read the question like this : \[ \large \color{black}{\begin{align} & \normalsize \text{There are 40 students. How many ways can a 5 member team }\hspace{.33em}\\~\\ & \normalsize \text{ with 1 captain and 4 normal players be formed ?}\hspace{.33em}\\~\\ \end{align}} \]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.4but in common sense, if we take a team, the team will not change if the team members are arranged in a different order. The team will be the same

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1ok but still max people gave 40C1*39C4 at first glance
