\({x \choose y}=\frac{x!}{y!(x-y)!}\)

 

Knowing this formula will allow you to compute any input for the choose function. Now, let's compute the result.

 

\({7 \choose 6}=\frac{7!}{6!*(7-6)!}\) Let's simplify the denominator first.
\(\frac{7!}{6!*(7-6)!}=\frac{7!}{6!}\) In order to simplify this, let's think about it this way...
\(\frac{7!}{6!}=\frac{7*6*5*...*1}{\hspace{3mm}6*5*...*1}\) There is a lot that will cancel here.

Compute: 7Chose6

 

\(\begin{array}{|rcll|} \hline && \mathbf{\binom{7}{6}} \\\\ &=& \binom{7}{7-6} \\\\ &=& \binom{7}{1} \\\\ &=& \dfrac{7}{1} \\\\ &\mathbf{=}&\mathbf{ 7 } \\ \hline \end{array}\)
