if there's 4 positions and 6 people to fill the positions, how many different permuations are possible, would it just be 6^4 or is it 4P6?>

6p4 actually.

im thinking \[\large \frac{6!}{4!(6-4)!}\]

Use your calculator.

my life is ruined D:..

OMG was this on your test?

@lgbasallote wrong

It's not combinations, it's permuations. So, \(\Large \color{Black}{\Rightarrow {6! \over (6 - 4)!} }\)

No, these are just quiz before final D:

really?

oh...yeah

I read, n=things to choose from and there's only 4 jobs so i thought 4p6... O:

nvermind the 4! then...

\(\Large \color{Black}{\Rightarrow {6! \over 2!} }\) \(\Large \color{Black}{\Rightarrow {720 \over 2 } }\) \(\Large \color{Black}{\Rightarrow {360} }\) XBOX 360 *whistles*

^corny

it's just so awkward when a random guy makes a lame joke on math

how do you know it's 6p4 and not the other way around O.o

Shut up lgba >.<

It's always the bigger number first and smaller second.

oh, that helps :P

since it cant be negative..

Actually it wouldn't be negative, but it'd be less than 1 but more than 0.

and more than 0*

idk why do they count 0!=1?

4-6 isnt negative? wowww

there is an absurd proof

That is because n! = (n + 1)! \(\div\) (n + 1)

4p6 isn't negative

What's happening to you @lgbasallote o.O

mehh i dont know those fancy abbreviations

i self-learned this so i just know how to do it..i dont believe in formulas and abbreviations :p

and 4-6 is negative enough for me

It's actually 0...so it's not negative bwahaha

4p6 means \[\large \frac{4!}{(4-6)!}\] right?

Hmm...

yes

hmm then ir's 12 not 0

You can't take the factorial of a negative.

But it's said as 0 because you cannot make groups of 6 out of 4.

then i was right that it cant be negative in the first place..you circeld me around

Lol you liar!

lgbasallote 0 since it cant be negative..

i just love winning arguments

LOL YOU LIAR

especially in topics i dont know

Since it can't be negative You said that for his answer

mrvontar Best Answer 0 how do you know it's 6p4 and not the other way around O.o

I best answer parth becuz he told me why and what is right lol

ParthKohli 1 It's always the bigger number first and smaller second. lgbasallote 0 since it cant be negative..

it cant be other way around because it cant be negative

Basa is PWNED

fierce competitions...

you just supported my answer you know

I said that it wouldn't be negative lol

4-6 is negative

If it's the other way too, it wouldn't be negative

Lol 4-6!! AGAIN!.

I think he's trolling u...

4p6 would generate 4-6 you said so and I believe that is negative

Lol trolling aside you cant do 4p6 because you can't take the factorial of a negative

I just told you. We can't make groups of 6 in 4, so it is 0.

Apply a bit of common sense, and you'll get it.
