Binomial coefficients can be defined in three equivalent ways. ${n\choose{}r}$ is ...

The interplay between these three quite different ways of thinking about the same objects leads to a great deal of beautiful mathematics.

The binomial coefficients turn up (unsurprisingly) in the Binomial Theorem.


Show that the "three facts" given above can be reduced to these two:
