• 1. How to count without actual counting Elegant technique of counting (1) General introduction & Historical development : Useful in trade, business, industries, Govt. sectors and also the study of combinatorial coefficients. (Coupled with a story) A grandfather had 6 school going grand children ........... (2) Story leading to fundamental principle of counting : If an event can occur in m different ways following which another event could occur in n different ways, then total number of ways of simultaneous occurence of both the events in a definite order is m × n (This can be extended to any number of events) Models: Number of ways in which one can travel from town T1 to T3 (a) via Town T T2 in a definite order = 3×2. (b) Cinema Hall (i) Number of ways in which he can enter and leave the cinema hall by a different door = 5×4 (ii) He can enter & leave by any door = 5×5 = 25. (iii) He can enter by D1 , D2 and leaves by D3 , D4 , D5 = 2 × 3 = 6 (c) Tossing of a coin & Tree diagram (2×2×2) (d) Keeping P | C | M | E book on a shelf. = 4 × 3 × 2 × 1 (3) Statement of Fundamental principle of counting supported by graded examples. Examples on Fundamental principle: (i) 3 digit numbers using the digits 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 without repetition. (5.4.3 = 60) (ii) 10 T/F questions. How many sequences of answers are possible.

(4×7.6.5 or 8.7.6.5 – 7.6.5.4) (viii) A letter tock: (4) Significance / meaning of the title of the chapter. Permutation & Combination and introducing notion of factorial. Permutation means arrangement in a definite order of things which may be alike or different taken some or all at a time. Hence permutation refers to the situation where order of occurence of the events is important. DEFINE : Things which are alike and which are different. All God made things in general are treated to be different and all man made things are to be spelled whether like or different. Combination – on the other hand refers to the situation where order of occurence of the events is not important. 0! = 1 ; 1! = 1 ; 2! = 2 ; 3 ! = 6 etc. (factorials upto 7 must be remembered) (2n!) = 2n .n! [ 1.3.5........(2n–1)]. Note that sum of all the factorials > 4 is never a perfect square.

Since for each selection of 'm' persons there will be a corresponding rejection of n persons hence each selection of m and a corresponding rejection of n people will give a group.  Number of groups = m+n Cm = ! n ! m )! n m (  . However situation is different if m = n. consider 4 different toys T1 T2 T3 T4 When T1 T2 is selected and T3 T4 is rejected  one way of forming the group.

(b) To understand the article consider 10 children to be divided into three unequal groups of 2,3 and 5. (i) First make two groups of 2 and 8 and this can be done in ! 8 ! 2 ! 10 way say. AB/CDEFGHIJ Consider our such group of 8 which can be divided into two groups of 3 and 5 in ! 5 ! 3 ! 8 ways. Hence total = ! 8 ! 2 ! 10 . ! 5 ! 3 ! 8 = ! 5 ! 3 ! 2 ! 10 Similar explanation will be valid if initial groups in 3 and 7 and then split 7 in 2 and 5. However if 10 is divided into two groups of 5 each initially, which can be done in ! 2 ! 5 ! 5 ! 10 ways ....(1) One such grouping is say A B C D E F G H I J Consider F G H I J keeping AB C D E as it is. Now the group F G H I J can be divided into two groups of 2 and 3 is ! 3 ! 2 ! 5 and similarly when F G H I J is kept as it is, A B C D E can be divided into two groups of 2 and 3 in ! 3 ! 2 ! 5 ways. Hence one group (each of 5) given by (1) generated 2. ! 3 ! 2 ! 5 different groups of 2, 3, 5.  Total no. of groups = ! 2 ! 5 ! 5 ! 10 . ! 3 ! 2 ! 5 . 2 = ! 5 ! 3 ! 2 ! 10 Similarly if m = n = p situation becomes different. Consider T1 T2 T3 T4 T5 T6 to be divided into 3 equal groups. When we say 6 C2 . 4 C2 = ! 2 ! 2 ! 2 ! 6 is totally wrong why? Selected in 6 C2 Selected in 4 C2 Rejected in 4 C2 (A) T1 T2 T3 T4 T5 T6 T1 T2 T5 T6 T3 T4 T3 T4 T1 T2 T5 T6 T3 T4 T5 T6 T1 T2 T5 T6 T1 T2 T3 T4 T5 T6 T3 T4 T1 T2 R S G Note that all these six groups are counted in (A), however they are identical. Hence the answer in (A) is as many numbers of times more more as many number of times these equal groups can be arranged i.e. 3! times. Hence the correct number of groups is equal to ! 3 ! 2 ! 2 ! 2 ! 6 .

Note that our final correct answer is ! 2 ! 5 ! 5 ! 2 ! ) 12 ( ...(1) One way  ! 10 ! 2 ! 12 &  ! 2 ! 5 ! 5 ! 10  (1) Second way = ! 7 ! 5 ! 12 & = ! 5 ! 2 ! 7  ! 5 ! 2 ! 7 . ! 7 ! 5 ! 12 = ! 2 ! 5 ! 5 ! 12 seems to be a mistake of 2! in denominator. How do we explain. Consider one group out of ! 2 ! 5 ! 5 ! 12 say ...(2) Hence A B C D E | F G H I J | K L is one way. However in (1) when we select F G H I J and reject the remaining i.e. We have again the same group F G H I J | A B C D E | K L Hence answer gives by (2) is double  correct answer is ! 2 ! 2 ! 5 ! 5 ! 12
