Find the number of combinations of $1$ item from a set of $6$.
Hint: ${}^n \mathrm{C}_r = \dfrac{n!}{r! \, (n-r)!}$
${}^{6} \mathrm{C}_{1} = \dfrac{\class{inputBox step1}{~\bbox[border:2px solid blue]{\strut\rlap{\class{inputReplace}{A1}}\hspace{54px}}~}!}{\class{inputBox step1}{~\bbox[border:2px solid blue]{\strut\rlap{\class{inputReplace}{A2}}\hspace{54px}}~}! \times \class{inputBox step1}{~\bbox[border:2px solid blue]{\strut\rlap{\class{inputReplace}{A3}}\hspace{54px}}~}!}$ ${}^{6} \mathrm{C}_{1} = \dfrac{6!}{1! \times 5!}$
Cancel and calculate. Hint: Multiply the numbers down from $n$ in the numerator, and down from $r$ in the denominator.
${}^{6} \mathrm{C}_{1} = \dfrac{\class{inputBox step2}{~\bbox[border:2px solid blue]{\strut\rlap{\class{inputReplace}{B1}}\hspace{35px}}~}}{\class{inputBox step2}{~\bbox[border:2px solid blue]{\strut\rlap{\class{inputReplace}{C1}}\hspace{35px}}~}} = \class{inputBox step2}{~\bbox[border:2px solid blue]{\strut\rlap{\class{inputReplace}{DR}}\hspace{80px}}~}$ ${}^{6} \mathrm{C}_{1} = \dfrac{6}{1} = 6$
