I've put this in community section as its more of a maths question than fully relating to graphic design. Im terrible with numbers and I need to know how many layout permutations a 32 page magazine containing 74 editorial sections and 18 adverts are. I need to quantify my work. i.e. if each one of the adverts was placed next to each one of the editorial sections on each one of the pages what would be the total sum of all the possible layouts. Would the correct formula be 74x18x32? I think I need a 'to the power of x' on the 32 though (i have no idea what 'to the power of' does or means though) I really should of listened in school.
