Question about Microsoft Computers & Internet

5 Answers

Permutation formula I need to list out all the combinations of numbers 1 to 9 which can be achieved with 6 spaces. I know you can use CHAR to do this but only have an example which shows 12 letters into combinations of three. I am unsure how to expand this to combinations of six with only 9 possibilities. Can you help?

    Thanks for your help but I know how to calculate how many permutations I will get what I need is to list each one of them out in 6 columns on an excel spreadsheet so I need formula to post that I can fill down in each column.

    eg 111111, 111112, 111113, 111114 ... 223456 etc and so on there should be 9x9x9x9x9x9=531,441 permutations in my final list with none repeating.

    I am using Microsoft excel version 2007. The CHAR I refer to is a formula option like ROUND or PERMUT. Sorry for the confusion.

    I have been e-mailed to tell me that there is a new comment on this problem but there is nothing new here!!

  • sueplant Aug 14, 2008

    I have not really had a response to this problem yet. Can anyone help as I need to get this list pronto!!

  • sueplant Aug 14, 2008

    Thanks to all who have answered but you have all told me how to calculate how many permutations which I already know. I need formula to put at the top of each column in cells a1 to f1 which I can then fill down to give me a long column of all the combinations
    eg
    111111
    111112
    111113
    111114

    I have the formula for picking three alphabetical characters from ABCDEFGHIJK.

    In cell A1 type =CHAR(65+TRUNC((ROW()-1)/144))
    In cell B1 type =CHAR(65+MOD(TRUNC((ROW()-1)/12),12))
    In cell C1 type =CHAR(65+MOD(ROW()-1,12))

    This does work but I do not know how to expand it to 6 columns with 9 options. I know that CHAR 49 is the ASCII ref for number 1 and 50 is for number 2 etc so I can substitute that and I assume that the 12 will be replaced with 9 but apart from that I do not understand the logic of the formula.

    I hope this helps you find me a solution.

Im looking for the total combination for this nuber 13 20 31 36 41 45 permutations i think its called


Do you want combinations or permutations? They're different things. A combination of n items taken m at a time, sometimes written "nCm", selects m items from a group of n without regard to order. A permutation of n items taken m at a time, sometimes written "nPm", selects m items from a group of m with regard to order.

Given six numbers, there are six combinations of one number, 15 combinations of two numbers, 20 combinations of three numbers, 15 combinations of four numbers, six combinations of five numbers, and one combination of six numbers.

Given six numbers, there are six permutations of one number, 30 permutations of two numbers, 120 permutations of three numbers, 360 permutations of four numbers, 720 permutations of five numbers, and 720 permutations of six numbers.

I need all possible 5 digit combinations using only numbers 1,2,3,4,7 nobly using each number once in every combinations


There is only one combination using all five digits, namely 1, 2, 3, 4, 7 in some order.

If the order matters then there are 120 different permutations. I won't list them all here, but they start with 1, 2, 3, 4, 7 and go through 7, 4, 3, 2, 1.

There's only one six-digit combination possible, namely the digits 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6.

If the order matters then there are 720 possible permutation. I'm not going to list them all. Start with 123456, then 123465, 123546, and so on to 654312 and 654321.

Does anybody know how many different combinations there are for the numbers 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6?


That depends on how many of those six numbers you take.
If you only take one number, there are six combinations: {1}, {2}, {3}, {4}, {5}, and {6}.
If you take two numbers, there are fifteen combinations: {1,2}, {1,3}, {1,4}, {1,5}, {1,6}, {2,3}, {2,4}, {2,5}, {2,6}, {3,4}, {3,5}, {3,6}, {4,5}, {4,6}, and {5,6}.
If you take three numbers, there are twenty combinations.
If you take four numbers, there are fifteen combinations.
If you take five numbers, there are six combinations.
If you take all six numbers, there is only one combination: {1,2,3,4,5,6}.
In general, if you take 'm' objects out of a set of 'n' objects, the number of combinations is given by n!/[(m!)(n-m)!] where '!' is the factorial operator.

N=10,r=6 find permution


Hi there!The simple formula for permutations is n^r - in this case, it would be 10^6 which is 1,000,000. This is the answer if repetitions are allowed. If repetitions are NOT allowed, then the formula changes. It would then be 10 * 9 * 8 * 7 * 6 * 5 = 151,200, which is also 10!/4! Hope that helped! Alex

How to calculate a permutation problem in a lottery of 1 - 45 digits


I assume you are looking for the number of combinations of 1 - 45 where the first number is one of the 45, the second number is one of the remaining 44, etc. The answer is 45 factorial (i.e x=45*44*43*...*2*1). The Excel formula Is =FACT(45).
