A combination is a grouping or subset of items. For a combination, the order does not matters.

C(n,r) represents the number of combinations of n items r at a time. \(C\left( {n,r} \right) = {}_n{C_r} = \left( {\begin{array}{*{20}{c}}n\\r\end{array}} \right) = \frac{{P(n,r)}}{{r!}} = \frac{{n!}}{{\left( {n - r} \right)!r!}}\)
