Returns the number of ways to choose some number of objects from a pool of a given size of objects, considering order.

Sample Usage

PERMUT(4,2)

PERMUT(A2,B2)

Syntax

PERMUT(n, k)

n - The size of the pool of objects to choose from.

k - The number of objects to choose.

Notes

PERMUT is the standard combinatorics function typically notated nPk. This is similar to COMBIN except in permutations, the order of selection is considered rather than simply the resultant selected subset.
