TotalObjects! / (Number!Of!Each!Repeated!)
Picking groups, where order doesn't matter
(If 3 of 7 standby passengers are selected for a flight, how many diff. combos of standby passengers can be selected?)
Factorial of the total / (Factorial of group 1 * Factorial of group 2)

(3^3, or 3x3x3)

Probabilty that X AND Y both occur
Multiply probabilities together
Probability that independent event X OR event Y will occur
Add probabilities together
Probability of event X OR event Y, which can occur together
P(X) + P(Y) - P(X+Y)
