Please help. I didn't get the right answer with this before.

A mathematics journal has accepted 14 articles for publication. However, due to budget restraints, only 7 articles can be published this month. How many specific ways can the journal editor assemble 7 of the 14 articles for publication?

Possible answers:

14

3,432

98

17,297,280

14C7=14!/(7!7!)

! means factorial

7!=7×6×5×4×3×2×1

If order is not important

14C7=14!/(7!7!)

! means factorial

7!=7×6×5×4×3×2×1

If order is important, which is not explicit in the question, then the answer is

14P7=14!/7!
