If there are 12 candidates in a city election. The winner will be the mayor and the runner up will be the vice mayor. How many different combinations of mayor and vicemayor are possible?
Would it be 12P2 = 132 ? o:

yes
The major position can be filled in 12 ways, then the vm spot can be filled in 11 ways, so
12(11) = 132
