## Study Notes

### Combinations Without Repetition

- A combination without repetition is a selection of objects from a set without regard to order, where each object can only be chosen once.
- Formula: C(n, k) = n! / (k!(n-k)!) where n is the total number of objects and k is the number of objects to be chosen.
- Example: Choosing 3 books from a shelf of 10 books, where the order doesn't matter.

### Circular Permutations

- A circular permutation is an arrangement of objects in a circle, where the order matters.
- Formula: (n-1)! where n is the number of objects.
- Example: Seating 5 people around a circular table, where the order matters.

### Recursion In Counting

- Recursion is a method of counting where a problem is broken down into smaller sub-problems, and the solutions to the sub-problems are used to solve the original problem.
- Recursion is often used to count the number of ways to arrange objects in a particular pattern.
- Example: Counting the number of ways to arrange 3 letters in a row, where the first letter can be any of 3, the second letter can be any of the remaining 2, and the third letter can be the remaining 1.

### Permutations With Repetition

- A permutation with repetition is an arrangement of objects where the order matters, and each object can be used more than once.
- Formula: n^k where n is the number of objects and k is the number of positions to be filled.
- Example: Choosing 3 letters (with repetition allowed) from the alphabet to form a 3-letter word.

### Fundamental Counting Principle

- The fundamental counting principle states that if there are m ways to perform one task, and n ways to perform another task, then there are m Ã— n ways to perform both tasks.
- This principle can be extended to more than two tasks.
- Example: Choosing a shirt from 5 options, and pants from 3 options. There are 5 Ã— 3 = 15 ways to choose both.

### Combinations Without Repetition

- Combination without repetition is a selection of objects from a set without regard to order, where each object can only be chosen once.
- Formula to calculate combinations: C(n, k) = n!/ (k!(n-k)!) where n is the total number of objects and k is the number of objects to be chosen.
- Example application: Choosing 3 books from a shelf of 10 books, where the order doesn't matter.

### Circular Permutations

- A circular permutation is an arrangement of objects in a circle, where the order matters.
- Formula to calculate circular permutations: (n-1)! where n is the number of objects.
- Example application: Seating 5 people around a circular table, where the order matters.

- This principle can be extended to more than two tasks.
- Example application: Choosing a shirt from 5 options, and pants from 3 options, resulting in 5 Ã— 3 = 15 ways to choose both.
