What Are Statistical Permutations? Probability is the mathematical calculation of the chances of an event taking place. It is the methodology that is used by weather forecasting professionals and even in lotteries. Therefore, learning probability might also help you win a lottery! So, there are two types of probabilities when it comes to finding the number of arrangements of objects. These include permutations and combinations. These two can confuse the students, and it is what makes it seem complicated. A permutation is an arrangement of objects together while following a fixed order. When we are talking about arrangement without order, we call this type of probability, combinations. To calculate permutations, you need to use this formula; nPr = n!/(n-r)! Here n is the number of elements in the set that need to permuted, r is size of each permutation. Both of these are non-negative integers.
