 Re: Permutation and Combination how to find rank?

In 256^2  let us take 235,250 and 250,235, 0,250  (0-255 total  256 values)

235,250 will occur on 235*256+ 250 = 60410

250,235 will occur on 250*256 + 235 = 64235.

0, 250 will occur on 0*256 + 250  = 250

I want to know any function available in PARI to tell by giving 64235 to get 250 and 255 and reverse. In same way for higher power also ( 256^3 - three combination and permutation, 256^4 - four combination and permutation and so on.)

I'm not sure what you're asking. You can use numtoperm and permtonum to convert a number to a permutation and vice versa:

> permtonum([3,1,2])
%1 = 4
> numtoperm(3,%)
%2 = [3, 1, 2]

Hi ,

How to find rank in permutation and combination. For example

256^2 will give all possible permutation and combination. I want  know at 50000

what combination will come?  Using Pari how to calculate.
