Description

Combinatorics and probability are two branches of mathematics that are closely related and play a significant role in various fields such as computer science, statistics, and engineering. Combinatorics deals with counting, arranging, and selecting objects, while probability focuses on predicting the likelihood of certain events occurring.

In combinatorics, one of the fundamental concepts is permutations, which refers to the number of ways in which a set of objects can be arranged. For example, if we have a set of three letters A, B, and C, there are six possible permutations: ABC, ACB, BAC, BCA, CAB, and CBA. Combinations, on the other hand, involve selecting a subset of objects from a larger set without regard to the order in which they are selected. For instance
