If P (9, r) = 3024, find r.
Question:

If P (9, r) = 3024, find r.

Solution:

P (9, r) = 3024

$\Rightarrow \frac{9 !}{(9-r) !}=3024$

$\Rightarrow \frac{9 !}{(9-r) !}=9 \times 8 \times 7 \times 6$

$\Rightarrow \frac{9 !}{(9-r) !}=\frac{9 \times 8 \times 7 \times 6 \times 5 !}{5 !}$

$\Rightarrow \frac{9 !}{(9-r) !}=\frac{9 !}{5 !}$

$\Rightarrow(9-r) !=5 !$

$\Rightarrow 9-r=5$

$\Rightarrow r=4$
