Evaluate the permutation P(8,3)
2 Answer

1. User Answers weibel005
So the permutation formula is
N!/(nr)!
In your case n=8 (or the number of thing you are choosing from)
And r=3 (the number of things you are choosing) 
2. User Answers abidemiokin
The value of P(8, 3) is 336
How to calculate the permuatation
Given the expression P(n,r), this is expressed according to the formula to have:
nPr = n!/(nr)!
P(8, 3) = 8!/(83)!
P(8, 3) = 8!/5!
P(8, 3) = (8*7*6*5!)/5!
P(8, 3) = 336
Hence the value of P(8, 3) is 336
