Thanks. I am new, but i understand more.

I think your missing part of the question or i forgot to ask part of the question. What if they are requiring natural ordering only? So repetitions can occur

comment Permutation with Natural Ordering
I still cannot seem to get the answer for Requires in order, but non unique. This one is hard, and the answer your giving me is incorrect. Given this, the solution says that k = 93 and n = 8 (where natural order matters and non-distinct) should be equal to (probability wize) k = 100 and n = 8 (natural order and distinctive)

Ill give you the answer, because you helped me with the first section! Thanks so much.

If both order matters and repetitions are not allowed, the site says (TopCoder.com) 1/45 is the probability (given the example i gave you). I found the answer. Its ((k + n - 1) / (n - 1)).

The distinct case i am getting 45, which is the number that is provided on the solution, but the non-distinct case i am not getting the same answer. I get 36 (which they say the answer is 55).

I am not to good at combinatorics. Does this mean the equation is, using the example data, ((10 - 2 + 1)! / 2!(10 - 2)!) ? I also do not know how to do sweet editing tricks like you do, i am new to the math.so!

defined by the problem (i just read) (a,b) where a <= b. This is a problem off of TopCoder.com. I have never taken a probability class (or really learned anything about combanitorics). So i am very lost! But i did learn a lot more today by reading several online articles!

I think it should be more english friendly now :) (I did not proof read and i did several section rewrites, i eventually got a mixture of like 4 different thoughts!)

My first paragraph really made no sense. (I had to cut and paste it several times).
