According to fundamental counting principal it is known that, if the first event occurs in m ways, and the second event occurs in n ways, then two events occur in as sequence of mn ways.
There are 7 choices of appetizer, 12 choices of entrée, and 6 choices of dessert.
Hence, total number of different meals is, 7×12×6=504.
Thus, 504 different means are available to select an appetizer, an entrée, and a dessert.

Given n distinct objects, there are n ! permutations of the objects and n ! / n "circular permutations" of the objects (orientation of the circle matters, but there is no starting point, so 1234 and 2341are the same, but 4321 is different).
Given т objects of k types (where the objects within each type are indistinguishable), r i of the i t h type, there are
n ! r 1 ! r 2 ! r k !
permutations. How many circular permutations are there of such a set?

How are we able to calculate specific numbers in the Fibonacci Sequence?
I was reading up on the Fibonacci Sequence, {1,1,2,3,5,8,13,....} when I've noticed some were able to calculate specific numbers. So far I've only figured out creating an array and counting to the value, which is incredibly simple, but I reckon I can't find any formula for calculating a Fibonacci number based on it's position.
Is there a way to do this?
