**Permutation & Combination Class XI Chapter 6**

*Explanation of Formulas and basic points related to the permutation and combination class XI chapter 6, method of arrangement and selection of the objects.*

**Fundamental Principal of Counting
: **

If an event can occur in m different ways,
following which another event can occur in n different ways, then the total
number of occurrence of the events in the given order is m x n.

**This principal can be generalized for
any finite number of terms. **

If an event can occur in m different
ways, following which another event can occur in n different ways, following which
another event can occur in p different ways, and so on. Then the total number of occurrence of the
events in the given order is m x n x p…………..

For Example:

**A person
have 3 pants and 2 shirts. How many different pairs of a pant and a shirt, can
he dress up with?**

**Solution**

**There
are 3 ways to select the pant. He can either select pant P**_{1}, P_{2}
or P_{3}. Similarly there are 2 ways to select two shirts, S_{1} or S_{2}.

**So
possible pairs for dress up are 3 x 2 = 6 as shown in the figure**

**Example 2**

**A boy have
two bags(B**_{1}, B_{2}), 3 tiffin boxes(T_{1}, T_{2}
T_{3}) and 2 water bottles(W_{1}, W_{2}). What is the possible ways to select the three objects.

**Solution**

**Two bags
can be selected in = 2 ways**

**Three
tiffin boxes can be selected in = 3 ways**

**Two water bottles
can be selected in = 2 ways**

**Total ways
of selecting all (2 bags, 3 tiffin boxes, 2 water bottles) = 2 x 3 x 2 = 12
ways**

**Factorial Notation : **

The product of n natural numbers is denoted
by n! and read as
n factorial

**i.e. n! = 1 . 2 . 3 . 4 .… (n - 2)(n - 1) n or**

**n! = n (n - 1)(n - 2) ……3 . 2 . 1**

**A permutation is an arrangement in a definite order of number of objects taken some or all at a time.**

**In simple words permutation is an arrangement and combination is a selection.**

**Permutations when repetition is allowed:****The number of permutations of n different objects taken all at a time, when repetition of objects is allowed is n**^{n}

**Number of permutations of n different objects taken r at a time, where repetition is allowed is n**^{r}.

**When repetition is not allowed**

**Permutations
when all the objects are distinct.**

**The number of permutations of n objects taken all at a time, is given by ****The number of permutations of n different
objects taken r at a time is given by **

**For Example:**

**Derivation of formula**** **

**The number of permutations of n different objects taken r at a time where 0 ≤ r ≤ n and the objects do not repeat is given by **

= 7 ✕ 6 ✕ 5 also if n = 7, and r = 3 then n - r + 1 = 7 - 3 + 1 = 5 = 8 ✕ 7 ✕ 6 also if n = 8, and r = 3 then n - r + 1 = 8 - 3 + 1 = 6 **Multiplying numerator and denominator by (n-r)(n-r-1)….3 x 2 x 1, we get**

**Other Examples**

**When a coin is tossed then possible outcomes (n) = 2, If we toss a coin for two time (r = 2) then possible arrangements are = n**^{r} = 2^{2}.

**When a coin is tossed then possible outcomes (n) = 2, If we toss a coin for three time (r = 3) then possible arrangements are = n**^{r} = 2^{3}.

**When a die is tossed then possible outcomes (n) = 6, If we toss a die for four time (r = 4) then possible arrangements are = n**^{r} = 6^{4}.

When Repetition is not allowed
**Permutations when all
the objects are not distinct:**

**Number of permutations of n objects, where p are of the same kind and rest are all different is given by ** n!/p!

**The number of
permutations of n objects, where P**_{1} objects are of one kind, P_{2}
objects are of second kind ……….. P_{k} are of k^{th} kind and
rest if any are different is given by:

**Combinations**

**It is the method of selecting the objects**

**The
number of combinations of n different objects taken r at a time is given by : **

**For Example: Let there are three objects X, Y, Z. We want to find the number of combinations obtained by selecting any two of then. Here we make the selection as given below.**

Here order is not important.

So two objects can be selected from 3 in

Similarly if there are are seven persons in a room and each person hand shakes with each other then total number of hand shakes are given by

Other important results of combinations are:

**If ** ⇒ either a = b or a = n-b or n = a + b

** **

**For Example**

**Relation between permutation
and combination is given as :**

**Formula for finding the number of diagonal of a polygon **

**If a polygon have n sides then number of diagonals can be calculated by using the formula **

**Q) If a polygon have 44 diagonals then what is the number of sides of the polygon.**

**Sol. If a polygon have n sides then number of diagonals are given by**

**According to this question number of diagonals is 44. Therefore **

**(n - 11)(n + 8) = 0 ⇒ n = 11, n = -8**

**But number of sides cannot be negative so rejecting n= - 8. Hence we have n = 11**

**Question ****How
many positive numbers greater than 6000
and less than 7000 which are divisible by 5 if no digit is repeated. [Ans 112]**
