have you learned the C(n,r) notation ?

your problem simply becomes C(14,6)

(I read that as "choose 6 from 14)

its value = 14!/(6!8!)

= 3003

look for this function on your calculator, it usually looks like this

_{n} C _{r}

to get the answer follow these steps

enter 14

press 2ndF, then the above key

enter 6

press =

you should get 3003
