I got the answer for the first part = 15P2 = 210. but not sure how to work out - in how many ways can a new president and vice-president be chosen four years from now if no one is allowed to be elected to the same position twice.

Answer #1

**For the first part**, you have to pick 2 people
for the two posts available since one person can't have both, hence
for 1st post you have 15 options to pick from. For the next post,
you have 14 people to choose from, hence total possible cases are
15*14 = 210.

**For the second part**, the same person can'
contest for the post he had earlier. Now, for the first post(let's
say president) there are 14 members to choose from while for the
second post(Vice-president) there are 14(excluding the vice
president earlier but the president can contest for this post
according to the given condition) persons to choose from. Hence
total cases in this cases are 14*14 =196
