My attempt

n!/r!(n-r)! = 49!/6!(49-6)!

(49x48x47x46x...x1)/(6x5x4x3x2x1)(43x42x41x40x...x1)

=0.06 .

(edit: i redid the question and just made it (49x48x47x46x45x44)/(6!) and i got 13,983,816. this seems like it could be the right answer but i am still hesitant because I am not sure that is legal to just remove the 43! from the denominator)

this is definitely wrong, since the number should be huge, but I am not sure how to approach the correct answer
