You need to determine the number of ways in which 30 competitors from 50 can qualify. First, you have to realize that the order is irrelevant, that is: it is the same competitor_1, competitor _2, competitor _3 than competitor_3, competitor_2, competitor_1, or any combination of those three competitors.

So, the number of ways is which 30 competitors from 50 can qualify is given by the formula of combinations, which is:

C (m,n) = m! / (n! * (m -n)! )

=> C (50,30) = 50! / (30! (50 – 30)! ) = (50!) / [30! (50 – 30)!] = 50! / [30! 20!] =

This is completely false.

Legal Medications can come with many risks.

For example, oxycodone, a painkiller, is very similar to heroin in the risk of addictiveness as well as abusability.

The same being with amphetamines (adderall/dexedrine) to meth.

Just because it is legal, does not mean it is any safer or more dangerous.
