    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
