(26*25*24*23*22)/5!
If you had a game of scrabble, and there were only 26 letters in the bag (each letter is a member of the alphabet, no repeats) and you were to chose 5 out of the bag and not put them back in, then how many possible selection of letters can you make?
I don't think the order matters, so would the answer be 26C5?
Thanks!
