## Permutation of n object has some of repeated kind

Definition and formula description :-
The number of permutations of 'n' objects where p1 objects are of one kind, p2 objects are of one other kind… till pk, is: Application
The number of ways in which you can jumble the alphabets of the word 'balloon' is given by Example 1 :-If there are 4 chocolate chip, 2 oatmeal, and 2 double chocolate cookies in a box, in how many different orders is it possible to eat all of these cookies?

Solution:-
There are 8 cookies, so n=8. We want to eat all of the cookies; therefore, we are choosing 8 objects at a time. In this example, r=8, and we are eating a group of cookies with flavors that repeat. In the group of 8 cookies, there are 4 chocolate chip, 2 oatmeal, and 2 double chocolate cookies, so  Example 2 :-In how many of the distinct permutations of the letters of the word MISSISSIPPI are possible when four I’s do not come together?

Solution :-
The word MISSISSIPPI has one M, four i’s, four s’s, two P’s and a total of 11 letters. The number of all type of arrangements possible with the given alphabets Let us first find the case when all the I’s together and so take it as one packet or unit. So now we have one M, one unit of four i’s, four s’s, two P’s and a total of 8 units.
Therefore the number of arrangements possible when all the I’s is together Hence, the distinct permutations of the letters of the word MISSISSIPPI when four I’s do not come together = 34650 – 840 = 33810.
Since the number count of different alpgabets is given as:
N (occurrence of alphabet ‘b’) = 1
N (occurrence of alphabet ‘a’) = 1
Also, n(occurrence of alphabet ‘l’) = 2
n(occurrence of alphabet ‘o’) = 2
n(occurrence of alphabet ‘n’) = 1
