How did you get the number? Combinations
$ echo $(echo {2..100} | sed 's/ /*/g') \ / $(echo {2..7} | sed 's= =/=g') \ / $(echo {2..93} | sed 's= =/=g') | bc 16007560800

    Sorry, I meant permutations, so there a N!/(N-K)! ways to select K tiles from a bag of N.

    Or for 7 of 100 tiles = 100*99*98*97*96*95*94 permutations.

    I think it will be easier to calculate the probabilities of the different combinations rather than count them, but it's still going to be a fair amount of work.
