Weegy: They can form 2 different committees. If they both must have a minimum of 5. The group would likely have to subdivided into a 5-6 grouping. (More)

Weegy: 4! = 4 x 3 x 2 x 1 = 24. [smile] User: IN HOW MANY WAYS CAN 5 PEOPLE BE CHOSEN AND ARRANGED IN A STRAIGHT LINE, IF THERE ARE 11 PEOPLE FROM WHOM TO CHOOSE? Weegy: this is called a permutation.
this means the order of the combination matters.
on the scientific calculator there is a button labeled as nCr. [ when using the shift button the button is nPr.
nPr is what you want to use.
n is how many you have which is 8. (the bigger number)
r is how many you need. which is 6.
so the short way is 8P6 which equals your answer.
but showing your work. you do it this way.
8!/(8-6)!
8!/2!
8!=40,320
2!= 2
So its 40,320/2 which is 20,160.
