177 – the bracelet problem

This problem is from the Math Forum, called “Bracelet Craze.”

If the company has twelve different colors of beads, and exactly one bead of each colorĀ must be used to make a bracelet, how many different bracelets can be made?

Bonus: If there are n different colors of beads, and exactly one bead of each color must beĀ used to make a bracelet, how many different bracelets can be made?

I had a lot of fun doing this problem, so I shared it with my geometry kids. Wonderful problem to showcase the kids’ perseverance!
