Permutations,variations and combinations First of, we're talking no repetition. So I thought I would just look these up when I get home, but I didn't find anything except finding the number of possible permutations, variations or combinations. I already know that part because of the formulas, but my teacher talks about some order of permutations and finding the n-th permutation. Is there some sort of rule of ordering permutations? For example if we had: $\displaystyle 1 2 3 4 5$ what would be the next permutations and why?

Eh, sorry for the late reply, had no internet. So I guess the writers of my textbook made one up and didn't write anything about it? I mean most exercises there are about finding the n-th permutation (or combination) which wouldn't make any sense if there wasn't one defined. Well I'll just cling on to the pattern I found. Thanks for the reply anyway.
