Anyways... I guess it's pretest tomorrow and test on Friday so.. I'm a little apprehensive but we'll see how things go! Haha.

Things to know~

**Permutations**: Order matters!!!!!!

**nPr or 'n pick r'**

**Combinations**: Order DOES NOT matter!!!

**nCr or 'n choose r'**

And throwing this in so we never forget can't hurt either....

**A LOGARITHM IS AN EXPONENT**! ( this is not actually relevant to the test but I figured I would throw it in anyways)

And remember, if you get excited about certain numbers that u see, don't use an exclamation mark to emphasize your excitement because that really means FACTORIAL~

**Factorial means**: n*(n-1)*(n-2)*(n-3)....*3*2*1

**FUNDAMENTAL PRINCIPLE OF COUNTING**: If there are

**M**ways to do one thing and

**N**ways to do another, then there are

**M***

**N**ways to do both things!

**ALSO REMEMBER THE BINOMIAL THEOREM AND PASCAL'S TRIANGLE!!**

**I have had trouble with:**

**Knowing when it's nCr nPr**

**Knowing how to manipulate the numbers into these fine equations.**

**Our latest Homework about hte poker, although I think I've got it now!**

**Simple mistakes here and there.**

**Getting sleep haha but whatever. It's not like I NEED it....**

As usual, tips for the test!

**1. STUDY STUDY STUDY!!**

**2. If you don't get it, don't feel ashamed to ask for help. We're all friends here in Pre-Cal 40S Winter 09 ! ;)... except maybe for Anthony... jk haha ... You're Awesome Anthony!**

**3. Eat right, exercise, and live a healthy lifestyle!**

**4. Maybe don't hit up TYC on Thursday night with your fake ID and party until 3 in the morning.... just a suggestion... (because clearly we ALWAYS do this kinda thing...)**

**5. Relax, stress makes it harder to think!**

**6. If all else fails when writing the test, just guess! You may get part marks for work shown and you might even get the right answer! Nothing ventured, nothing gained!**

**Well, that's all this Pokemon Champion has for one night... As usual Good luck on the test... How hard can it be to count, right??**
