P (10,2)  = 10! / (10-2)!  = 10! / 8! = (10*9*8*7*6*5*4*3*2*1)/(8*7*6*5*4*3*2*1) = 10*9 = 90

Example - if you have to select 2 numbers out of 10 -

P (10,2)  = 10! / (10-2)!  = 10! / 8! = (10*9*8*7*6*5*4*3*2*1)/(8*7*6*5*4*3*2*1) = 10*9 = 90

When you need to calculate the number of possibilities is where you need permutation.

sdstuberCommented:
maybe you're asking about permutations vs combinations

permutations observe order

      "ab"  and "ba" are distinct results

combinations ignore order

       "ab" and "ba"  are the same result

looks like something probability

sdstuberCommented:
yes,  what are the odds of drawing an "a" and a "b" out of 10 letters?

90 possible permutations,  "ab" and "ba" are the successes   so    2/90

the act of changing the order of elements arranged in a particular order, as abc into acb, bac, etc., or of arranging a number of elements in groups made up of equal numbers of the elements in different orders, as a and b in ab and ba; a one-to-one transformation of a set with a finite number of elements.

Example: The permutations of the letters in the set {a, b, c} are:
P (3,3)  = 3! / (3-2)!=3x2x1/2x1=6

abc        acb
bac        bca
cab        cba
