    Considering the definition of permutation, the items can be arranged in 30,240 ways.

    What is Permutation

    Permutation is placing elements in different positions. So, permutations of m elements in n positions are called the different ways in which the m elements can be arranged occupying only the n positions.
    That is, permutations refer to the action of arranging all the members of a set in some sort of order or sequence.
    In other words, permutations (or Permutations without repetition) are ways of grouping elements of a set in which:
    • take all the elements of a set.
    • the elements of the set are not repeated.
    • order matters.
    To obtain the total of ways in which m elements can be placed in n positions, the following expression is used:
    mPn= m!÷ (m-n)!
    where “!” indicates the factorial of a positive integer, which is defined as the product of all natural numbers before or equal to it.

    Ways the items can be arranged

    In this case 5 items are chosen at a random without replacement from a list of 10 items.
    You want to know in how many ways can the 5 items be arranged if the order of items in arrangement is important. So, you use the permutation 10P5.
    10P5= 10!÷ (10-5)!
    Solving:
    10P5= 3,628,800÷ 5!
    10P5= 3,628,800÷ 120
    10P5= 30,240
    Finally, the items can be arranged in 30,240 ways.
