## Fixed Permutation

 intfixed_permutation( int n int m )
A permutation of n objects with m fixed is a permutation in which exactly m of the objects retain their original positions. In more formal terms, consider the following permutation



then  has exactly m fixed objects if



If , the permutation is a derangement, while if , the permutation is the identity.

The number of permutations of n objects with m fixed is given by



or



where  is the number of derangements of  objects.

This function calculates the value of  based on the above formula.

### Example 1

#include <codecogs/maths/combinatorics/sequences/fixed_permutation.h>
#include <iostream>
int main()
{
std::cout << "The number of permutations of 10 elements with 5 fixed is: ";
std::cout << Maths::Combinatorics::Sequences::fixed_permutation(10, 5) << std::endl;
return 0;
}

### Output

The number of permutations of 10 elements with 5 fixed is: 11088

### Parameters

 n the size of the permutation m the number of fixed objects

### Returns

the number of permutations of n items with m fixed
