Permutation and Combination Problem.

Willie Wonka gives everyone who visits his factory 13 pieces of candy to take home. He never gives a person 2 or more pieces of the same type of candy. If Mr. Wonka has 19 different types of candy, in how many different ways could Mr. Wonka give a visitor his candy?

a) Mr. Wonka can distribute candy in ________________________ different ways?

If 170 people visit Mr. Wonka's factory each day, how many days could Mr. Wonka go without giving two visitors the same selection of candy

b) Mr. Wonka can go for _____________________ days without repeating candy selections?
