## Description

This function is used to calculate the number of k-combinations from a given set with n elements, denoted by:

For example, in the 3 elements of "a, b, c", "ab" and "ba" are considered the same combination but two different permutations.

## Syntax

int Combine(int n, int k)

## Parameters

**n**

- The number of elements in a given set. It must be a positive integer.

**k**

**k** < **n**.

## Return
