Distinct permutations are the unique permutations of n objects taking r at a time when some of the objects are repeated. For a complete example read below. First, you n…eed to understand what permutations are. Suppose you have 3 balls, 2 of them blue and one red. Lets call the first blue ball, B1, second blue ball, B2, and the third ball (the red one) R1. Permutation of the three balls taking the three at a time is all the different ways you can arrange those three balls in a row. That number is 3! = 3x2x1 = 6. The arrangements are listed below. 1) B1,B2,R1 2) B1,R1,B2 3) B2,B1,R1 4) B2,R1,B1 5) R1,B1,B2 6) R1,B2,B1 Now, suppose you remove the subscripts. The list looks like this: 1) B,B,R 2) B,R,B 3) B,B,R 4) B,R,B 5) R,B,B 6) R,B,B Note that you can't differentiate between 1 and 3, they looks like the same. Also, 5 and 6 looks the same, and 2 and 4 looks the same. So the only unique combinations seems to be 1,2 and 5. Those are call the distinct permutations. To calculate the distinct permutations of n elements taking r at a time use the formula: nPr / (k1!*k2!*...*kn!) In the example above: nPr = 3! = 6 -> All permutations of n elements taking r at a time k1 = 2 = 2 -> because we have two identical blue balls k2 = 1 = 1 -> we only have one red ball. So, distinct permutations = 3! / (2!*1!) = 6 /(2*1) = 3. Those distinct permutations are: BBR, BRB, RBB. You can use a software, such as Wolfram Mathematica, to generate the distinct permutations using the function DistinctPermutations. (MORE)

Distinct means separate. Sometimes, as in the case of square numbers, factors are repeated. The factor pairs of 16 are (16,1)(8,2)(4,4) The distinct factors of 16 are 1, 2, …4, 8, 16 The same is true of prime factors. The prime factorization of 36 is 2 x 2 x 3 x 3. The distinct prime factors of 36 are 2 and 3. (MORE)

"Distinct" in this case means different. Sometimes factors are repeated. Square numbers have a factor pair that is the same number twice. When we write out the list of numbers…, we don't write that number twice. The factor pairs of 100 are (100,1)(50,2)(25,4)(20,5)(10,10) The distinct factors of 100 are 1, 2, 4, 5, 10, 20, 25, 50, 100 (MORE)
