Question;Suppose you have a friend at a;different university who is taking a similar math course to one you are taking.;He is having problems understanding the subtle differences between permutations;and combinations, as well as the accompanying formulas nCr and nPr. Also, he;does not understand the Fundamental Counting Principle. In order to help, you;pick three questions from your book that deal with these concepts and write him;an email.;Directions;For this assignment, you will write a paper that will describe what you would;say in an email to this friend. In your ?email? you will present the solutions;to the three problems below. Show every step of your calculation. Use nCr, nPr;and the Fundamental Counting Principle in your email and explain what they;mean.;- Include an introduction in your paper/email that gives background on;combinations and permutations, provides motivation for learning these ideas;and relates any personal experiences you have with the topic.;- Include a conclusion that summarizes your answers, highlights the main;points, and puts things in perspective for your friend.;- Please remember that any written part of your assignments must follow the;CSU-Global Guide to Writing and APA Requirements;The three questions you must solve for your friend are;- How many different ways can 28 runners place in an Olympic qualifying;marathon?;- If only the eight fastest runners advance to the Olympics, how many different;ways can the eight fastest runners be chosen from the whole field of 28;runners?;- If the runner in first place receives a gold medal, the runner in second;place receives a silver medal, and the runner in third place receives a bronze;medal, how many different ways can the three medalists be chosen from the;entire field of 28 runners?
