At your current level, I'd bet you'd be able to solve this without our help. Why not first give it a go? Also, myself, I'd use characters or String representations of the numbers since we're not really treating these things as numbers.

I found the following code (courtesy of Permutations.java). For the particular problem I'm trying to do, I need to find the 1000000th permutation. How would I modify this code to do that?
Java Code:// print N! permutation of the characters of the string s (in order) public static void perm1(String s) { perm1("", s); } private static void perm1(String prefix, String s) { int N = s.length(); if (N == 0) System.out.println(prefix); else { for (int i = 0; i < N; i++) perm1(prefix + s.charAt(i), s.substring(0, i) + s.substring(i+1, N)); } }

hhhmmm...
 Do you know what that piece of code does?
 Do you know what the "prefix" and "s" variables are? What they represent?

I don't understand what the 1 millionth (or nth) permutation means. There is no order to permutations.
