Determine the sample space for this random experiment:

An urn contains six balls numbered 1-6. The random experiment consists of selecting five balls without replacement.

The way i did it was by figuring that the balls were selected simultaneously so i got six different combinations. But what if they are selected one at a time?

If they were selected one at a time, what would the final sample space be for each possible combination? I'll give you a hint: I don't think what you did and what the answer to the problem is differs so much :)
