Permutations and Combinations – This allows us to determine the number of possible ways we can arrange things. For instance, the letters

a, b,andccan be arranged asabc, acb, bac, bca, cab, cba. These are permutations because the order is important. However, with combinations, order is not important. In other words, combininga, b,andcasabcis the same ascabbecause the three letters are still combined, but in a different order.
