    How many 2D graph combinations can 498 different datasets provide?

    I did a course in discrete maths last year, but for the life of me cannot remember how to do the simplest of calculations anymore, eventhough I managed to get a first for it.

    I want to know how many different 2D graphs (i.e. x-y graphs) I can make from a total of 498 different datasets. EDIT: wait the set = {x, y} and each element can take 498 values, therefore the answer should be 498^2. Is this correct?

    Thanks guys, cheers.

    If I understand you correctly you have a 2-tuple such that each element belongs to a set of cardinality 498.

    Then you're correct, the number of different combinations would be 498^2.
