A television program director has 14 shows available for Monday night and 5 shows must be chosen. How many different possible combinations are there?

  • statistics -

    14 x 13 x 12 x 11x 10

    This is the counting principle. This Assumes choosing: ABCDE is different from ACDEB

    If you really want a combination you can use:

    14! divided by the product of 5!times 9!

    5! means 5x4x3x2x1

    there will be fewer combinations because ABCDE is the same as ACBDE
