USAF Personnel Meeting (Officers and Enlisted)

There will be a meeting next Thursday 4/19/18 at 7:20 PM EST (6:20 PM CST)

Reply to this topic with the following if you cannot attend

OFFICERS WILL BE STRIKED FOR NOT ATTENDING WITHOUT A NOTICE

Name:

Rank:

Reason you cannot attend (if personal just put personal):

If you have 1 CMDR spot as well as 2 VCMDR spots, and an officer board of 7 people to fill the positions, how many possible ways can you fill all the CMDR/VCMDR spots (first person to solve this with the correct math recieves 150k; first person to get my answer gets 50k):

You dont need to answer the last question

Hello Tumz,

Im not in your meeting but

C(7,3) = 7!/(3!*(7-3)!)

C(7,3) = 5040/(6*4!)

C(7,3) = 5040/(6*24)

C(7,3) = 5040/144

C(7,3) = 35 possible combinations.

Wouldn't it just be 7^3? so 343. Cause if you think about it like a keypad. If it has a 4 digit input (Amount os CMDR/CMDR Spots) and there are 10 numbers (How many officers), it would be 10^4, which is 10000 different inputs, like 0000, 0001, 0002 ... 9998, 9999.

And I don't know YOUR answer, but I feel like I'd hurt some peoples feelings if I said it.

Hello Cole,

The equation is a factorial to find combinations. If you have 3 spots for possible objects but 7 objects you have 35 possible combinations. The equation is as follows,

n (objects) = 7 (7 Officers to fill spots)

r (sample) = 3 (3 Possible spots to be filled (1 CMDR,2 VCMDRS)

Find for C (n,r) = (n!/(r!*(n-r)!)

Any number with ! after it is a factorial (EX: the factorial of 3 is 6. 3! = 3x2x1 = 6).

Set up your equation as C(7,3) = (7!/(3!*(7-3)!). And then from here it is a repeat of my answer above.

@Tumz using premitation, you would do (10)!/(10-10)!  =3,628,800

 

10 possible people to fill spots 

10 total spots

Correct method, incorrect answer

CORRECT, come speak to me for your money!

Sadly it didn't even happen because Tumz got promoted at the officer meeting 5min before the USAF meeting started to LTG and Danny got Vice Commander But wasn't trained so
