One who does combinatorics of course. Whenever you see a problem that says "how many ways" or "how many arrangements" you are probably looking at a combinatorics problem.

Hi bobbym,
I checked out this website you mentioned. It looks very much like www.mathisfun.com, especially the home page. Is it a subsidiary?
