A club with 33 members is to select five officers (president, vice president, secretary, treasurer, and historian). In how many ways can this be done?

  • algebra -

    The five posts are distinct (i.e. no duplicate posts).
    So the order of selection of these posts is important => solution is a permutation.
    Selecting r objects from n distinct objects, where order is important is given by P(n,r) where
    P(n,r)=n!/(n-r)!
    n! = n factorial
    For the given example, n=33, r=5.
    Can you take it from here?
