Work Step by Step

Arrangements, schedules $\rightarrow$ Permutations.$P(n,r)=\displaystyle \frac{n!}{(n-r)!}$. Arranging r=4 from n=380 available courses, $ P(380,4)=\displaystyle \frac{380!}{(380-4)!}\qquad$ $=\displaystyle \frac{380\times 379\times 378\times 377\times(376!)}{(376!)}$ $=380\times 379\times 378\times 377$ $\approx 2.052371412\times 10^{10} $
