    So, Jagranjosh.com has introduced a brief plan for revising topics at the time of examination. In this article, Combination which sometimes appear more difficult to understand in terms of making combinations & collections.


    From a given group of object each of the number of groups which are formed by taking some objects or all objects at a time without caring about the sequence of the objects is called combination. The number of combination formed by taking r objects at a time out of n object is denoted by nCr where C expresses combination.

    Restricted combination:

    The combination of r object out of n objects on which p specific objects:

    1. Are always included is n-pCr-p. We have to keep aside p specific objects and to select remaining (n-p).
    2. Are never included is n-pCr . Since p specific object are never included we have to form the combination taking r obects out of (n-p) objects.

    The number of ways to select some or all thing out of any number of given thing:

    There are 2 ways to select anything i.e. either it will be selected or not. Therefore number of ways to select n things is 2 × 2 × …………… n times = . 2n these empty selection is also include. For non- empty selection is 2n-1.

    Note: nC1 + nC2 +…………………………. + nCn = 2n-1.

    Difference between permutation and combination:

    Suppose there are 5 objects out of which 2 have to be chosen.

    So it is clear that in permutation order matters while in combination order does not matter.
