I know this is really simple but indulge me ok. I found this permuation problem at

http://cse.unl.edu/~rduell/assignments/countingTutorial/countingTutorial.html

Quote:
Example 2
How many bytes (a string of exactly 8 bits) contain exactly 5 zeros?

Here's the solution given :-

In this example note that the order selection of the bits that are a zero does not matter. Hence the postions of the zeroes in the byte form a 5 combination of the set of 8 elements. Thus the answer is C(8,5)=56.


Is there an easier way of understanding this ? Shouldn't it be a permutation problem ?
