# Permutations and Combinations Worksheets

What are Permutations and Combinations? Statistics is the field of mathematics that has the most practical implementation today. The method of forecasting and analytics is the present representation of how probability took place in the previous decade or so. Two of those statistical phenomena are the permutations and combinations. Let’s define both of them individually. The permutation is defined as all the ways of doing things where we care about the order of the elements. For instance, the pin code of your ATM card is 2468, so if you put 2648, then it will deny your request. Combination, on the other hand, is considered as the selection of all the ways without caring about the order for elements. For instance, it doesn’t matter if the students in your class sit anywhere, as long as all of them are present.
