Ordered Combinations

Description

Ordered combinations are when you choose $k$ objects from $n$ objects and these objects have an ordering to them. The number of ordered combinations is

\begin{align} \binom{n}{k}k!. \end{align}

The sage cell below calculates the number of ordered combinations when $n=10$ and $k=5$.
