4.7 – Solving Counting Problems Worksheet
Reminder to use:
Fundamental Counting Principle – if multiple tasks or stages are linked by the word “and”, lining up,
order matters, using cases or specifics.
Repetition – if there is a repetition then you must divide by r!
Permutations – When there are not cases or specifics, order matters, appointing specific jobs
Combinations – Order doesn’t matter, not appointing specific jobs.
