if you’re trying to fit a choose statement into an equation in latex, you might be tempted to use nchoosek (as i was). that doesn’t work though.

try this instead:

N \choose{2}

to print the equivalent of “n choose 2.”

    it didn’t work for me inserting this into a larger equation.
    I used {n \choose k} instead.

    I used the {n \choose k} and it worked beautifully!!! Thanks!!! :)

    This was useful, thanks. I guessed it would have been \choose{N}{K}, but that would have made too much sense, I guess. :P

    The construction ${n \choose r}$ (that’s the more correct form for $n \choose{r}$, what you gave) is now deprecated; it’s generally better to use $\binom{n}{r}$ or $\dbinom{n}{r}$.

    Thanks, just what I was looking for

Did I get this wrong? Let me know!
