At a recent dog show, there were 5 finalists. One of the finalists was awarded "Best in Show" and another finalist was awarded "Honorable Mention." In how many different ways could the two awards be given out?
The words "how many ways" reminds of probability. I just don't recall if this is a combination or a permutation.
I will take a guess and say this is a combination problem.
The set up is 5C2.
You say?
