How’s this for some light Monday reading? 😉 Actually, the title sounds a lot worse than the concept or its application. In fact, if you read the equation in its “native form,” above, it looks like gibberish, unless you’re really into mathematics or engineering 😉 For our purposes, we’ll reduce it to something that looks like regular mathematics (which it is) and tie it back into our series of posts from last week. This is what the derivation looks like in English, assuming n=4 and k=3 (no math involved ;). In fact, if you understand the concept of deriving factorials, this is really fairly basic:
