  1. use the 8C3.now, can u evaluate the value of 8C3 ?.nCr = n!/r!(n-r)!it is the general formula of combination. also u have know about the "factorial", like
    3! = 3 * 2 * 1 = 6
    8C3, in this case knowed n=8 and r=3. by using the formula above, it can be
    8C3 = 8!/3!(8-3)! = 8!/3!5! = 8 * 7 * 6 * 5! / 3*2*1*5! (cancel out the 5!)
    = 8 * 7 * 6 / 3 * 2 * 1 = 8*7*6/6 (cancel out the 6) = 8 * 7 = 56
