Menu

On the menu are 12 kinds of meal. How many ways can we choose four different meals into the daily menu?

Result

n =  495

Solution:

C4(12)=(124)=12!4!(124)!=12111094321=495  n=(124)=495C_{{ 4}}(12)=\dbinom{ 12}{ 4}=\dfrac{ 12! }{ 4!(12-4)!}=\dfrac{ 12 \cdot 11 \cdot 10 \cdot 9 } { 4 \cdot 3 \cdot 2 \cdot 1 }=495 \ \\ \ \\ n={ { 12 } \choose 4 }=495



Our examples were largely sent or created by pupils and students themselves. Therefore, we would be pleased if you could send us any errors you found, spelling mistakes, or rephasing the example. Thank you!
