**What is a combination?**

In mathematical terms, a combination is as it sounds, it’s a numerical operation that displays the total number of options to choose from given a set of objects or numbers. The combination will yield all possible combinations of r integers from a set of n integers. For example, let’s say we have a set of numbers 1,2,3. We want to choose all possible combinations of 2 integers. This yields the following: 1,2 / 1,3 / 2,3 = 3 total combinations.
