**MathMate**, Wednesday, August 15, 2012 at 8:07pmThe 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?
