WHAT DOES COMBINATIONS MEAN IN ENGLISH?

Combination

In mathematics, a combination is a way of selecting members from a grouping, such that the order of selection does not matter. In smaller cases it is possible to count the number of combinations. For example given three fruits, say an apple, an orange and a pear, there are three combinations of two that can be drawn from this set: an apple and a pear; an apple and an orange; or a pear and an orange. More formally, a k-combination of a set S is a subset of k distinct elements of S. If the set has n elements, the number of k-combinations is equal to the binomial coefficient which can be written using factorials as whenever, and which is zero when. The set of all k-combinations of a set S is sometimes denoted by. Combinations refer to the combination of n things taken k at a time without repetition. To refer to combinations in which repetition is allowed, the terms k-selection, k-multiset, or k-combination with repetition are often used.
