# How To Calculate Combinations ?

Nov 12, 2005

I want to see how much combinations are possible when i got 6 numbers..

-- got this numbers 1--2--3--4--5--6
-- want to calculate how much combinations of ( 2 ) numbers possible
-- want to calculate how much of ( 3 ) numbers possible
-- want to calculate how much of ( 4 ) numbers possible
-- want to calculate how much of ( 5) numbers possible

-- never 2 same numbers together (2-2) or (2-2-3) or (2-2-3-4) may not be in list

-- How can i make the result visible in kind of list ?

I would be nice if somebody knows a good solution..

## Calculate All Possible Combinations

Sep 11, 2007

I have check list of 14games. With this I'd like to make combinations.

Each row has one default value for unchecked rows of 3 columns in the list.

## Calculate The Combinations Of Entries

Apr 9, 2007

(I am unable to use Colo’s HTML Maker to post this—I have noticed several newer members indicating the same thing).

|....| 1 | 2 | 3 |4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8 |
| A | Y | N | Y | N | Y | Y | N | N |
| B | Y | N | N | Y | Y | N | N | N |
| C | Y | Y | N | Y | N | Y | Y | N |
| D | Y | Y | Y | N | Y | Y | N | Y |

The answer to the table above is: 144 combinations (using "Y" entries only). The answer is not to do just a simple count of the entries in each row and multiply as this produces 360 combinations rather than the desired 144 combinations. In this example, combinations such as 1-1-1-1 or 5-4-4-3 would not need to be calculated, which is the reason the answer is not 360 combinations.

The table always allows for 8 x 4 cell entries.
It is possible that every cell can be selected (the answer would be 8!/4! in this instance);
At least one entry must occur in each of the first 3 rows. In this example, if row 4 was excluded the answer would be 38 combinations (3 rows);

I am looking for 2 formulae: The first one to calculate the combinations of entries in 4 rows and the second to calculate for 3 rows only.

## Getting Excel To Calculate All Combinations Of A Set Of Data

Nov 4, 2005

I've found myself having to use a spreadsheet to calculate some acoustics problems, (problematic frequencies, called modes, in orders ranging from 0,1,2,3....).

Ideally what I want to be able to do is simply to get Excell to calculate all the possible combinations of these modes.

A combination could be:
000
011
101
110
111
012
143
etc.

Obviously this is a nightmare to input by hand, is there any kind of function I can use to help with this process?

Also these frequencies only need to be calculated up to a certain point, so is it possible I could also instruct the cell to only display a value if it is less than a value in another cell?

## Calculate Number Of Hours Between Two Date/time Combinations

Jan 21, 2010

I am trying to find a way to calculate the number of hours between date/times found in separate rows. The attached data set will help to envision what I am talking about.

For each couple of rows, I need to find a way to calculate the number of hours elapsed from row 1 to row 2. In the first example, to calculate the number of hours between 12/2/2009 8:56:51 and 12/4/2009 6:35:27.

## Number Combinations :: 25 Random Numbers (5 Digit Combinations)

Dec 15, 2008

I have 25 random numbers and I would like to get a possible 5 digit combinations of these numbers. Can anybody help me with the possible formula?

## Number Combinations :: Between 7 To 15 (6 Digit Combinations)

Jun 30, 2008

What I am looking for is to select between 7 and 15 numbers in total, I want all the possible 6 digit combinations for this.

EG: if I choose 2,9,11,13,15,17&26, it would look something like this

2,9,11,13,15,17
2,9,11,13,15,26
9,11,13,15,17,26
And so on.

If I chose more numbers (10) 1,2,3,4,3,6,7,8,9,10 it would start something like this

1,2,3,4,5,6
1,2,3,4,5,7
1,2,3,4,5,8
1,2,3,4,5,9
1,2,3,4,5,10
And so on.

Please remenber I would like to be able to secelt between 7 and 15 number and be given all the possible combinations.

I would like it to be in one sheet but if that can not be done on as many as it takes.

It would be good if I could just type the required number into A1,B1,C1 and so on and they just gave the combinations required.

## All Possible Combinations That Sum Up To X

Oct 19, 2007

I have a column of transactions lets say 500 or so, of irregular numbers such as 257,273.80 (not something ou can add up in your head...). I know that of those 500 transactions a handful of them have a sum of lets say 2,877,000.00, which I know. Now I need to find all possible combinations of values in this column that equal a sum I enter.

## Combinations Using Formula

Dec 14, 2008

I've attached an Excel..Its a small 4X4 matrix with numbers filled inside...Next to the right is a Combinations Column..I want to know how can i use just forumla to optain 4digit combination based on the 4X4 matrix. Rule is only numbers from the 4X4 be used.

## Combinations That Sum To A Given Total?

Feb 26, 2014

I have up to 30 cells each with an integral value from 1 to 5. The task is to list all the ways that selections of from 1 to 5 cells can be made from the list such that the value of the sum of the selection is 5. It will usually be the case that there will be a final selection that will not sum to 5 and this needs listing also.

I am aware of coding that can list out combinations, but not in a form that can be adapted to deal with the summing limitation. I hope that I will be able to code so that I can deal with different numbers of cells and different sum values.

## Median Of All Combinations

Jul 25, 2008

I have 5 numbers (can be with decimals) in column A (A1:A5). For these
numbers, I want all combinations as well as the median of these
combinations.

I'm pretty far already. However, the median seems to be calculated
wrong.

## Find Possible Combinations

Feb 11, 2009

I need to find possible combinations for the following example:

a*x + b*y + c*z = t
p = 10

Where
a = 0
b = 5
c = 10
t = 30

x + y + z has to = p

a, b, c, t, and p would be variables that I would specify. The numbers above are just examples. What I would need to see as output would be:

7a, 0b, 3c
4a, 6b, 0c
5a, 4b, 1c
etc...

## Macro That Gives All The Sum Combinations

Nov 14, 2013

I have a table with 3 columns and n number of rows looking like this:
A1 A2 A3
B1 B2 B3
C1 C2 C3
D1 D2 D3
...

I need to create a macro that gives all the sum combinations like this:
A1+B1+C1+D1
A1+B1+C1+D2
A1+B1+C1+D3
A1+B1+C2+D1
A1+B1+C2+D2
A1+B1+C2+D3
A1+B1+C3+D1
A1+B1+C3+D2
A1+B1+C3+D3
A1+B2+C1+D1
A1+B2+C1+D2
A1+B2+C1+D3
...

## Find All Possible Combinations Below Certain Value?

Feb 3, 2014

I have a simple list of names with associated numerical values.

I would like to create a formula that will produce a series of all possible series of 8 of those names whose combined numerical values are at or below a certain threshold (or between two thresholds, if that's easy). Bonus points if the total combined value for each group is easily shown, but that'd just be gravy.

## Figure Out The Combinations Available

## Display The Combinations

Jun 19, 2007

I have a list of numbers from 1 to 20 form a2 to a21, what I would like to do if possible if figure out many combinations of 5 there are for these numbers, and then second if possible display the combinations.

E.g. say there was a total 250000 combinations then show those 250000

## Given Number Combinations

Mar 16, 2008

I want to have a sheet with all the previous drawings for the florida lottery.
Then I want excel to ask me how many numbers do I wish to play.

Then when I say 12 (for example) it would pick 12 numbers from 1 to 53 and match all possible comibinations of thoses numbers to the the previous drawings and tell me wich 12 number combination would have won more times then others. So it would need to compare each possible 12 nmber combination to each other and see wich one won more 6outof6, 5outof5, 4outof4, and 3outof3. Then give me the one with the highest winings

## How To Count All Possible Combinations

Oct 24, 2008

I have a table:

And i need to count all possible combinatins. Result could be as:

Custome who use Voice also use combination:1VOICE ADSLCustome who use Data also use combination:1DATAIP2DATAADSLCustome who use IP also use combination:1IPDATACustome who use ADSL also use combination:1ADSLDATA

## Number Combinations

Oct 28, 2008

Here is what my table kind of looks like

A B
4 0.25
7 0.3
2 0.1
3 0.15

4 0.30
1 0.4
8 0.05
2 0.1

Now there is the number and the number(A) that it value it represents (B). This is what I want. I want to see all possible number combinations between the upper and lower A columns listed veritcally under the whole set, with out duplicating any numbers and with the upper numbers only being in the 1st position and the lower numbers being in the second position Ex( 4-1, 4-8, 4-2, 7-4, 7-1, ect, ect (listed vertically). Now in column B under, right beside each possible combination I want to see the result of the two values multiplied (ex. beside 4-1 I would like to see 0.1)

So below that mess listed above I want to see something like this

A B
4-1 0.1
4-8 0.0125
ect
ect
ect

I want to be able to swith the values around and have it automatically make the correction.

## Creating All Possible Combinations

Nov 24, 2008

I am trying to create a combination list. I have 48 items and I want to create all possible comibinations of 3 items from this group of 48 items.

I did something similar to create all possible combinations of 2 items from the group of 48 items in the attached spreadsheet. This was done manually and was time consumning. I want to do something similar for all possible combinations of 3 items from this group of 48 items.

All my 48 items are listed in rows 4 and 5. I want to enter the number "1" in each column to indicate my selection. Right now I have 2 ones per row. But I want to do 3 ones per row.

## Combinations Of Arrays Using Vba

Apr 16, 2009

I need to find the possible combinations for several arrays consisting of binary data. I shall give a simplified example with three arrays and four fields. Lets assume the three starting arrays look as follows:

1 0 0 0
1 0 0 0
1 0 0 0

Each row may contain one field = "1" and all other fields = "0". So the next possible combinations may be:

1 0 0 0
1 0 0 0
0 1 0 0

1 0 0 0
1 0 0 0
0 0 1 0

etc...until:

0 0 0 1
0 0 0 1
0 0 0 1

Assuming k = number of fields and c = number of arrays the possible combinations are k ^ c = 4 ^ 3 = 64. I am looking for vba coding that allows to cycle through all possible combinations and displays them in an excel spreadsheet. Ideally, the code should work for any k and c. Could anyone please give me any pointers as to how to tackle this problem?

p.s. in essence I'm looking for the tabular representation of a tree plan with four branches to commence with, a total of 16 decision nodes, and two possible outcomes (1 and 0)

## Permutation/Combinations

Aug 3, 2009

Can this be done in Excel? Using the digits 0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9 create all the permutations/combinations with limits on some of the digits. The digits 0,7,8,9 can only be used a max of 3 times in any one permutation/combination, digits 2,3,4,5,6 can only be used 4 time in any one permutaion/combination, producing a 5-digit string.
Example of expected results.
0 1 0 2 7

## Combinations - Win Or Draw

Nov 28, 2009

I'm creating a spreadsheet regarding football teams and want to lis thte combinations of results for each team.

Specifically, if the team will win or draw.

So, I have 6 teams, each team can either win or draw.

I want to display the combinations of team 1 winning AND team 2 winning AND team 3 winning etc.

## Key Show All Of The Possible Combinations

Dec 23, 2009

Outside the door of my flat I have a key holder – which has a combination of 4 digits. No-one knows what the combination is, so I’d like to try to find it, clear it and use it.
I wondered if there was a way to use excel to show all of the possible combinations so I can then tick them off as I try them…?

The possible numbers are 0-9, but you cant press a button more than once in any given attempt… so… first possible combination would be 0123… not 0001.

## Block Alt Key And All Combinations With It Except

Jan 23, 2010

This supposed to block Alt key and all combinations with it except Alt+F1, Alt+Tab and Alt+Shift. But what I get is: if I press Alt+F1 only, F1 is triggered.

Private Function LowLevelKeyboardProc(ByVal nCode As Long, _
ByVal wParam As Long, _
ByVal lParam As Long) As Long

Static kbdllhs As KBDLLHOOKSTRUCT

If nCode = HC_ACTION Then
Call CopyMemory(kbdllhs, ByVal lParam, Len(kbdllhs))
If CBool(kbdllhs.flags And LLKHF_ALTDOWN) Then
Select Case kbdllhs.vkCode
Case vbKeyF1, VK_LSHIFT, VK_TAB
Case Else
LowLevelKeyboardProc = 1
Exit Function
End Select
End If
End If
LowLevelKeyboardProc = CallNextHookEx(m_hDllKbdHook, nCode, wParam, lParam)
End Function

## All Possible Combinations From Groups

Nov 11, 2009

I have a set of 13 groups, each with anywhere from 1-9 different variables for a total of 56 variables. I want to find all the possible combinations of 1-5 variables. Only one variable can be used from each group in a combination. Please see attached data sheet.

## Chart All Possible Combinations

Dec 10, 2009

I have 4 groups of 5 variables each. I need to know how to make a chart in excel that lists out all of the possible 4 variable combinations of each.

Example: The groups are Group A, grp B, Grp C, Grp D and each group has 5 variables. You can use one variable from each group for a combination.

## Combinations (not Permutations)

Apr 26, 2006

You will find a VBA Code for a PRIVATE example - displaying all 6 numbers combinations out of 10 (1-10).

My code displays them (in column "A") BUT What my question to you is - does someone have a General/Universal code to handle other kinds of combinations.

To my opinion, the usage of Nested (For-Next) Loops will not be the ideal solution - so maybe by using VBA Recursion ?

## Combinations Which Are Exclusive Of Each Other

Jun 7, 2006

in columns CT, CU, and CV i have listed all possible combinations of 3 produced from the 12 variables (a through l). each combination has a score (listed in column cw). I have sorted all combinations in descending order by score. is there a way I can search all the combinations and select the 4 which have the highest score but are also exclusive? that is, none of the 4 combinations may contain the same variables.

## Generate All Possible Combinations

Dec 28, 2006

Is there an Excel Addin that will let me figure out the total number of combinations for any size number pool I specify (39,49, 53) and with any combination quantity I specify (3, 4, 5, 6)? And most important is that all these combinations be displayed in a column separated by commas.

Is a VBA script designed to handle something this complex.
