**MathMate**, Wednesday, January 26, 2011 at 9:47pmThe number of ways groups of m and (n-m) objects that can be formed from n distinct objects is

n!/(m!(n-m)!)

The analogous formula for groups each consisting of m1, m2, m3...mt objects (which add up to n) is:

n!/(m1!m2!m3!....mt!), where m1+m2+m3...mt = n.

Thus the number of ways of partitioning 12 students into 4 groups of 3 is 12!/(3!3!3!3!)

= 369600
