You can put it into the calculator on the home page like this:    npr(12,9)

 

But if you don't have a calculator that can do this.....

 

\(_nP_r=\frac{n!}{(n-r)!} \\~\\ _{12}P_9=\frac{12!}{(12-9)!} \\~\\ _{12}P_9=\frac{12!}{3!} \\~\\ _{12}P_9=\frac{12\,\cdot\,11\,\cdot\,10\,\cdot\,9\,\cdot\,8\,\cdot\,7\,\cdot\,6\,\cdot\,5\,\cdot\,4\,\cdot\,3!}{3!} \\~\\ _{12}P_9=12\,\cdot\,11\,\cdot\,10\,\cdot\,9\,\cdot\,8\,\cdot\,7\,\cdot\,6\,\cdot\,5\,\cdot\,4 \\~\\ _{12}P_9=79,833,600\)
