1. ## combinations

Hi,

I posted a question regarding the same subject the other day and gratefully received the answer i was looking for but now need to take it a step further.

The original problem was i needed to find out how many possible combinations there are for 10 events each with three possible outcomes,i was told this was easily worked out by using 3 to the power of 10 which worked brilliantly and produced 59,049.

I now need to learn how to find out how many are possible combinations there are when i change the parameters.

The original example was 10 football matches so i think it best to stick with that.Each football match has three possible outcomes=home win,draw,away win so 3 to the power of 10 here is the formula but i need the formula for different parameters.

i.e if i said that in my combinations i wanted combinations with no more than 6 home wins,3 draws and 4 away wins how would i formulate this to give me the number of possible combinations. thankyou in advance

Do not post the same question multiple times. It wastes everyone's time.
