Main Question or Discussion Point

How do you write the permutation and combination formulas using latex. This is the best I can do:

[tex]n_P_r=\frac{n!}{(n-r)!}[/tex]

You mean like this: [tex]n \choose r[/tex] or [tex]^n\mathrm{C}_r[/tex] ?

Yes, that's what I meant, but I am used to writing down like this:

Out of curiosity, are you good at perms. and combs.? Because I have a question on the the Precalc. forum that hasn't been answered yet. If not, it's ok, because I can wait.
