## Study Notes

### Permutations

- The number of ways to arrange 6 distinct objects (A, B, C, D, E, and F) in a row is a permutation problem.
- If a job can be done in 'm' different ways, and another job can be done in 'n' different ways, the total number of ways to do the jobs is the product of 'm' and 'n' (m × n).

### Permutations of Objects with Duplicates

- The number of permutations of 'n' objects, where 'p' objects are of the same kind and the rest are different, can be calculated using a specific formula.

### Permutations of Distinct Objects

- The formula for the number of permutations of 'n' distinct objects is n! (n factorial).

### Real-World Applications

- The number of ways to arrange 6 boys and 4 girls in a line is a permutation problem.
