# Combinations with Repetition

## Answers to Questions (FAQ)

### How to generate combinations with repetition?

Item combinations with repetition consist in generating the list of all possible combinations with elements that can be repeated.

Example: A,B,C items are shuffled in 6 couples of 2 items: A,A A,B A,C B,B B,C, C,C. Without repetition, there would be only 3 couples A,B, A,C et B,C.

The sets of n elements are called tuples: {1,2} or {1,2,3} are tuples.

### How to count combinations with repetition?

Counting repeated combinations of k items (sometimes called k-combination) in a list of N is noted $\Gamma_n^k$ and $$\Gamma_n^k = {n+k-1 \choose k} = \frac{(n+k-1)!}{k! (n-1)!}$$

The number of combinations with repeats of $k$ items among $N$ is equal to the number of combinations without repeats of $k$ items among $N + k - 1$.

### How to remove the limit when computing combinations?

The calculation of the combinations generates an exponential number of values and the generator requires large calculation power on servers, these generations have therefore a cost (ask for a quote).
