Some 5 number sets 2018-03-02
From Sarah:
Hello! My question is:
If I have 5 columns of numbers, and I want to create all possible combinations (or is it permutations?) How can I do that? For example all numbers in each column may not appear in any other column. so:
column 1: 1,2,3,4,5
column 2: 6,7,8,9,10
column 3: 11,12,13,14,15
column 4: 16,17,18,19,20
column 5: 21,22,23,24,25

how may I determine all the possible ways I can get sets of 5 out if this? Thanks!

Sorry if you have answered this before but I don't understand the explanations I have seen. How many possible combinations are in a 5 digit code (like a Zip Code). Is there an equation that can be used for this type of question?
