4! (factorial) or 24.

If you break it down, the first position can have the numbers 1 through 4 (4 possibilities), the second has one less by being second (3 possibilities), the third has two less (2) and the last one is just 1. Multiply each position by the next (4*3*2*1) and you get 24.

* * * * *

That is totally incorrect. The given answer refers to the number of PERMUTATIONS not the number of COMBINATIONS.

The combination 1234 is the same as 1243, 2134 etc. In fact, all 4 permutations are the same combination. Consequently there is only 1 combination.

you can make 24 combinations, you don't have to draw write down everything out; for example, 1234, 1243, 1324, 1342, 1432, 1423, you can make 6 combinations out of number "1", and 2,3,4 are also the same, so all you need to do is use 6 (because of six combinations for each number) times 4 (because 4 numbers in total) then you get 24, which is your final answer. : )
