Permutations :

In statistics, in order to find the number of possible arrangements of a set of objects, we use a concept called permutations. There are methods for calculating permutations, and it's important to understand the difference between a set with and without repetition. Other important concepts that can apply to situations like permutations are the fundamental counting principal and basic probability.
