In how many ways can 8 instructors be assigned to five sections of a course in mathematics?
i believe it would only be: 8*7*6*5*4
When an instructor is picked for the first class, there are 8 people to choose from For the next class, there are 7 to choose from. Then 6. Then 5. Then 4. That covers all the classes.
