## How To Calculate The Number Of Bets In A Perm

We will show you by example:

Perm any 3 from 5 = 10 bets

Why 10 Bets?
This figure is arrived at by multiplying 5 x 4 x 3 =60

You then multiply 1 x 2 x 3 = 6

Then divide the greater number by the smaller:
60 / 6 = 10

Any 3 from 6 would be 6 x 5 x 4 =120
Again you multiply 1 x 2 x 3 (because it is a perm any 3) which gives 6

And you then divide 120 by 6 which gives 20 bets.

If it was any 4 from 6 you would multiply the 4 highest numbers: 6 x 5 x 4 x 3 = 360
And you would then multiply the 4 lowest numbers:
1 x 2 x 3 x 4 = 24

then divide 360 by 24 which gives 15 lines

So a Perm any 5 from 10 would go like this:

10 x 9 x 8 x 7 x 6 (the 5 highest numbers multiplied together = 30240

Then multiply the 5 lowest numbers: 1 x 2 x 3 x 4 x 5 = 120

Then divide 30240 by 120 = 252 lines.
