Help me
Let X=(1,2,3,,,,100) and let S=((a,b,c):a,b,c€X,a<b and a<c) find the number of S. there is some prob in 2nd bracket so i cant give it.
Re: Help me
There can be $100$ different choice for $a$ , and $100a$ for $b$ & $c$ each ,so the answer is
$\sum_{n=1}^{100} n^2$ or $338350$ .
$\sum_{n=1}^{100} n^2$ or $338350$ .

Re: Help me
@mahi I think atiqur wrote $a<b$ LESS THAN. And even though if you thought it is $a>b$ then how did you figured out the sum?
I mean why it is: $\sum_{n=1}^{100} n^2$
Suppose, $X$ $=$ {$1$,$2$,$3$}
If $a=1$ , then the number of $S$ is $4$. S={1,2,2}, {1,2,3}, {1,3,2}
And if $a=2$ , then the number of $S$ is $1$ S={2,3,3}
So, the total number of $S$ is $4$ in this case.
But according to your method it should be: $\sum_{n=1}^{3} n^2$ or, $14$ .
@atiqur_jhe well, $2nd$ bracket is just beside $P$. And if you're talking about $L_A T_E X$ then you might see this: matholympiad.org.bd/forum/viewtopic.php@f=25&t=2.htm (How to use LATEX)
It'll take 10 minutes to learn some basic tatice of latex for general use.

Re: Help me
For every choice of $a$ , there are $100a$ elements greater than $a$ in the set , all of which is a choice for $b,c$ .
