1. ## Combination/Permutation Problem

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!

2. (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 choose 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: .$\displaystyle _{26}C_5$ ?

Yes!
