Questions based on permutation and combinations are confusing to many of the students as they are always unclear about whether need to calculate permutations or combinations. The topic is very important as the concept is also used to solve many probability questions. Therefore let me clarify here the difference between both the terms so that going forward you can solve permutation and combination questions like an expert.

Combinations can be defined as the number of ways in which r things can be selected out of n things at a time. The keyword here is SELECTION. The order in which r things are selected does not matter. So AB and BA are same in this case.

Permutations can be defined as the number of ways in which r things can be selected and arranged out of n things at a time. The keyword here is ARRANGEMENT. The order in which r things are arranged has the critical importance. So AB and BA are different in this case.
