    Re: distinct permutations

    The number of permutations of N objects is N!. But say r of the objects are indistinguishable, then the number of distinct permutations become \frac{N!}{r!}. Suppose that there are r indistinguishable objects of one kind and s of another. Then the number of distinct permutations is  \frac{N!}{r!s!}.
