Combin

 doublecombin( int n int k )
Returns the number of combinations for a given number of items. Use Combin to determine the total possible number of groups for a given number of items. A combination is any set or subset of items, regardless of their internal order. Combinations are distinct from permutations, for which the internal order is significant. The number of combinations of n items with k items in each combination is given by the following formula:


where:


Example 1

#include <codecogs/statistics/moments/combin.h>
#include <iostream>
int main()
{
double com = Stats::Moments::combin(9, 5);
std::cout << "The number of combinations is: " << com << std::endl;
return 0;
}
Output:
The number of combinations is: 126

Parameters

 n the total number of items. k the number of items in each combination. k must be less than n.

Returns

the number of combinations for a given number of items
