Ex 7.3, 7 Find r if 5Pr = 2 6Pr โ€“ 1 Calculating 5Pr & 6Pr โ€“ 1 Given, 5Pr = 26Pr-1 5Pr = 5!/(5 โˆ’ ๐‘Ÿ)! 6Pr โ€“ 1 = 6!/(6 โˆ’(๐‘Ÿโˆ’1))! = 6!/(6 โˆ’ ๐‘Ÿ + 1)! = 6!/(7 โˆ’ ๐‘Ÿ)! nPr = ๐‘›!/(๐‘› โˆ’ ๐‘Ÿ)! 5!/(5 โˆ’ ๐‘Ÿ)! = 2 ร— 6!/(7 โˆ’ ๐‘Ÿ)! ((7 โˆ’ ๐‘Ÿ)! )/(5 โˆ’ ๐‘Ÿ)! = 2 ร— 6!/5! ((7 โˆ’ ๐‘Ÿ)(6 โˆ’ ๐‘Ÿ)(5 โˆ’ ๐‘Ÿ)! )/(5 โˆ’ ๐‘Ÿ)! = 2 ร— 6!/5! (7 โ€“ r)(6 โ€“ r) = 2 ร— 6!/5! (7 โ€“ r)(6 โ€“ r) = 2 ร— (6 ร— 5!)/5! (7 โ€“ r)(6 โ€“ r) = 2 ร— 6 (7 โ€“ r)(6 โ€“ r) = 12 7(6 โ€“ r) โ€“ r(6 โ€“ r) = 12 42 โ€“ 7r โ€“ 6r + r2 = 12 r2 โ€“ 13r + 42 โ€“ 12 = 0 r2 โ€“ 13r + 30 = 0 r2 โ€“ 3r โ€“ 10r + 30 = 0 r (r โ€“ 3) โ€“ 10 (r โ€“ 3) = 0 (r โ€“ 3) (r โ€“ 10) = 0 Hence, r = 3, 10 But, r < n So, r < 5 and r < 6 โˆด r = 10 is not possible So, r = 3 is the answer
