    Question Solving for n....

    I have this formula and need to solve for n. How do I do it since it is a factorial? Please show me, my mind is too tired to figure it out. $\displaystyle n!/{k!(n-k)!} $

    To solve for n, your expression must be equated to something else. I.e it must have an equals sign somewhere.

    Does this look firmiliar?

    $\displaystyle ^nC_k = \frac{n!}{k!(n-k)!}$
