    I can't see much point in the tutor providing an unexplained formula, then saying she looked up the answer in an unspecified book! However, I did manage to arrive at the answer 56 with the help of Google. Here's how: Another way of writing her formula (that works on my screen) is C(n,r), which denotes the r-combination of n objects. C(n,r) = n!/(r!(n-r)!) (trust me!) So, if n=8 and r=5, we have: C(8,5) = 8!/(5!(8-5)!) = 40320/720 = 56 (QED). But I'm not sure why the tutor didn't explain that.

    if this is the basic course i dread to think what's in store for the next level. just throwing a number out of an unspecified book doesn't teach anything, just serves to confuse. how can you find an understandable explanation to get to 56.

    Worst explanation ever for the second part. By the way I saw someone posting on here that 8 X 5 = 56...it doesn't it equals 40.
