Permutation in mathematics made easy.Examples ,solutions,tricks and techniques.

Updated on September 29, 2013

PERMUTATION

· Permutation is an arrangement of objects considering its order.

If one event occurs in ‘m’ different ways and another event occurs independently in ‘n’ ways then the two events together can be done in (m x n) different ways.

If Mr. Maxon has 4 caps ,3 shirts and 2 paints then the number of ways he can dress is 4 x 3 x 2 that is 24 ways

Fundamental counting Principle: If the first task is done in “m” ways 2nd task in “n” ways and the third in “r” ways. The total no. of ways all three task can be done is “m x n x r” ways.

· Permutations: Examples

a) Number formation using given digits.

b) Arrangement of books in a shelf.

c) Arrangement of people for a photograph etc

Permutation means arrangement of objects in which its order is very important.

· Meaning of factorial:

5! = 5 = 5 x 4 x 3 x 2 x 1 = 120

3! = 3 x 2 x 1 = 6

n! = n(n-1) (n-2) ………………… 3 x 2 x 1

· Meaning of nPr→ Permutations of ‘n’ things taken ‘r’ at a time.

· Formulae

nPr = , nPn =n! , nP1 = n, nP0 = 1, nP2 = n(n-1), 0! = 1

No. of diagonals in a polygon of ‘n’ sides = nC2 – n =

nPr means arrangement of ‘r’ number of objects from ‘n’ number of objects taken at a time.

Find the number of permutations of the letters of the word SECTION. Or How many different wasys the letters of the word SECTION can be arranged without repeating the letters? Like SECTION, ECTIONS, CTIONSE, SEIONCT etc. here all letters are taken at a time. Therefore it is 7P7 =7! = 7 x 6 x 5 x 4 x 3 x 2 x 1 = 5040 ways.

The number of ways in which 3 books can be arranged in taking 2 at a time is. 3P2

The number of 4 digit number can be formed using 1,2,3,4,5,6 is 6P4

The number of ways in which 4 students can be seated in a bench out of 5 students is c

How to find the value of 6P4, 5P4, 3P2 etc? Use this formula. nPr = Here ‘n’ means total nember of objects and ‘r’ means the number of objects taken at a time and n!= n x (n-1)x(n-2)……….4 x 3 x 2 x 1.

(n-r) ! = (n-r) (n-r-1) (n-r-2) ………………4 x 3 x 2 x 1.

So 3P2= 3 x 2 x 1 / 2 x 1 = 3

6P4 = 6 x 5 x 4 x 3 x 2 x 1 / 4 x 3 x 2 x 1

Try these, Find how many 3 digit numbers can be formed using the numerals 6, 1, 2, 3, 4 without any repetitions?

Find the number of two digit numbers that can be formed using 4, 5, 6, and 8 without any repetitions?

Find the number of ways in which 4 students can be seated in a bench?

How many 4 digit even number can be formed using 1,2,3,4,8,9?

5. Number of triangles can be formed by using 10 non collinear points

a) 100 b) 110 c) 120 d) 140

6. nP1 + nC1 =

a) 2n b) n c) 2 d) n-1

7. Value of 20C18 is equal to

a) 360 b) 380 c) 190 d) 180

8. If nP3 = 120 , then ‘n’ is equal to

a) 6 b) 10 c) 8 d) 12

9. The value of 2! – 0! + 3! is

a)4 b) 5 c) 7 d) 8

10. The factorial form of 4 x 5 x 6 x 7 is

a) 7 b) 7! -3! c) d)

. Find the total number of 4 digit even numbers that can be formed using the numerals 0, 1, 2, 3, 5, 6 without any repetition.

31. Find the number of permutations of the letters of the word RICKET

32. There are 3 routes from P to Q. In how many ways one go from P to Q. In how many ways one go from P to Q

and return to P, if he does not like to return by the same route.

33. If nPr = 60 and nCr = 10 Find the value of r.

34. If nP4 =12nP2 then find ‘n’.

35. How many 3-digit numbers can be formed using the digits 1, 2, 3, 5 and 6 without repetitious? How many of

these are even numbers?

36. Find the total number of 2 digit numbers that to can be formed.

37. How many three digit numbers can be formed using the digits 0, 1, 2, 3 without repetitious?

38. In how many ways can 6 different books be arranged in a shelf o that 2 particular books are always together?

39. There are 8 members in a club of which A and B are two members. A committee of 5 be formed. How many ways of these will include A and exclude B?

Remember all these information is only for linear arrangement, here elements are not suppose to be repeat.. I f you want to learn other interesting concepts in easy way click here.
