Mary purchased a package of 13 different plants, but she only needed 9 plants for planting. In how many ways can she select the 9 plants from the package to be planted?

    This would be an example of the C(n,r) that I explained in a few posts below.

    You are choosing 9 from the 13, and the order really does not matter, so
    C(13,9) = 13!/(9!4!) = 715


    look for a key labeled nCr on your calculator

    press
    13
    2ndF
    nCr
    9
    =

    you should get 715
