- 1. How many ways can they sit in a row? Proud Pride
- 2. In how many ways can 5 people be seated in a straight line?
- 3. Factorial Notation When we want to multiply all the natural numbers from a particular number down to 1, we can use factorial notation to indicate this operation. The symbol quot;!quot; is used to indicate factorial. This notation can save us the trouble of writing a long list of numbers. For example: 6! means 6 x 5 x 4 x 3 x 2 x 1 = 720 On the calculator ... 4! = 4 x 3 x 2 x 1 = 24 Press: [MATH] [<] (Prb) 10! = 10 x 9 x 8 x 7 x 6 x 5 x 4 x 3 x 2 x 1 [4] (!) = 3 628 800 1! = 1 By definition 0! = 1
- 4. In how many ways can six students be seated in 8 vacant seats?
- 5. Permutations (the quot;Pickquot; Formula) A permutation is an ordered arrangement of objects. On the calculator ... Press: [MATH] n is the number of objects available to [<] (Prb) be arranged r is the number of objects [2] (nPr) that are being arranged. Examples: In how many ways can 5 people In how many ways can six students be seated in a straight line? be seated in 8 vacant seats?

- 8. 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6? (c) How many of these numbers are divisable by 5?
- 9. HOMEWORK (a) How many different 4 digit numbers are there in which all the digits are different? (b) How many of these numbers are odd? (c) How many of these numbers are divisable by 5?
