I have to work out and write down (on a spreadsheet):

how many groups of three numbers can be extracted (without repetition) from 80.

as an illustration:

there is only one group of three numbers in 3 (1,2,3)

there are four groups of three numbers in 4 (1,2,3 1,2,4 1,3,4 2,3,4)

there are 10 groups of three numbers in 6 (see attached worksheet)

I hope this calculation makes sense.

I need help with the formula for determining how many combinations, but in addition I also need them written out in a spreadsheet in an ordered way similar to that arranged in the attached worksheet.

I would be very grateful for help

Now, what would be great would be a way of listing them all out in order.

1 2 3 (each number to its own cell)

1 2 4

1 2 5

1 2 6.... etc
