At a family gather, 23 people are trying to fit into several cares. your car holds 6 people. How many different groups of 6 could you take in your car? I got 19769460480..is that right O.o?

You're choosing 6 from 23, so 23 choose 6 or 23c6

23*22*21..etc till 6 numbers down multiplied together?

My browser crashed... :'(

Okay, so that'll make: \(\Large \color{Black}{\Rightarrow {23! \over (23 - 6)! \times 6!} }\) \(\Large \color{Black}{\Rightarrow {23! \over 17! \times 6!} }\) \(\Large \color{Black}{\Rightarrow {23 * 22 * 21 * 20 * 19 * 18 \over 6!} }\) 17! got cancelled. \(\Large \color{Black}{\Rightarrow {23 \times 22 \times 21 \times 20 \times 19 \times 18 \over 6 \times 5 \times 4 \times 3 \times 2} }\)

Now a calculator :P

I got like 395 billion O.o

I got 100,947 on the calculator.

Do you have nCr function on your calculator?
