Fundamental Rules of Counting 121 The Rule of Sums Rule of Sums If the possible outcomes of A can be divided into two dis joint sets B and C then A B C Example 121 There are two barrels of apples The first barrel has 10 apples and the second barrel has 8 apples A person walks by and selects an apple from a barrel How many di erent apples could the person have selected Solution The apples in each barrel are disjoint that is to say that any apple in the first barrel cannot be in the second barrel and vice versa The LECTURE 1 MAY 14 2007 5 problem canbe split into two parts The first part is the number of different apples the person could select from the first barrel and the second part is the number of different apples the person could select from the second barrel Part 1 10 different apples Part 2 8 different apples By the rule of sums the total number of different apples the person could have selected is 10 8 18 122 The Rule of Products Rule of Products If the possible outcomes of A can be performed in two independent stages B and C then A B gt C Example 122 A six sided die is rolled and the result is recorded The die is then rolled again and the new result recorded Find the number of outcomes for this procedure Solution There procedure is performed in two stages rolling the die the first time and rolling the die the second time The result of the first stage has no effect on the result of the second stage so the two stages are independent Part 1 Stage 1 6 results Stage 2 6 results By the rule of products the number of results for the given procedure is 6 a 6 36 13 Permutations Permutation Given n distinct objects any linear arrangement of the objects is called a permutation of the n objects LECTURE 1 MAY 14 2007 6 Example 131 A coin is ipped and the result is

Example 311 Give the number of combinations of 5 objects from s1s2s3 with replacement Solution There are 3 classes and we are selecting 5 objects We can rep resent any given combination by using a notation of crosses and bars For example s cs c I s cs cs c I would indicate that there are two objects from the first class three objects from the second class and zero objects from the third class Looking at a combination in this manner there are seven possible positions for either a star or a bar In order to create a combination we only need to fix the positions of bars or stars Since there are 5 3 1 7 positions and we are fixing 3 1 2 bars there are a total of combinations This can be applied to a general case Theorem 311 The number of combinations of n objects from r classes is equal to 1l have also heard this called stars and bars and balls and buckets LECTURE 3 MAY 19 2007 nr 1 r 1 Example 312 Find the number of combinations of 10 objects selected from 3 classes with at most two

we are selecting 10 objects from the three classes with at most 2 selections from the first class Therefore the answer is 30 Lecture 4 May 21 2007 41 Induction The principle of induction is used to

A function is written as f A gt B where A is the the domain and f B is the range Example 631 Is the relation in Example 621 a function No because 3 does not occur exactly once in every ordered pair 631 OnetoOneInjective OnetoOne Injective A function f A gt B is one to one if each element of B occurs at most once in the range of f A Corollary 631 If f A gt B is a onertorone function then A S B 632 Onto functions Onto Surjective A function f A gt B is onto if every element of B must occur exactly once in f A Corollary 632 A gt B is an ontofunction then A 2 B 64 Bijection Bijection A function
