Write and post a real world word problem that can be solved using permutation or combination. All of the information necessary to solve the problem must be included.

First Response to a Classmate Choose one of your classmates’ problems that have not been solved by another student and write and post a complete solution. Show and explain all of your work. You can use a calculator to evaluate the permutation or combination, so you do not have to show the work for that.
