Permutations and Combinations – This allows us to determine the number of possible ways we can arrange things. For instance, the letters a, b, and c can be arranged as abc, acb, bac, bca, cab, cba. These are permutations because the order is important. However, with combinations, order is not important. In other words, combining a, b, and c as abc is the same as cab because the three letters are still combined, but in a different order. To learn more about Permutations and Combinations, click here.
