Where W= Degeneracy, X=the number if possible microstates, n=number of available particles
This is correct, they are two distinct things but they can be related with an equation
Like what was said, degeneracy is related to microstates by the equation W = X^n; this is just because degeneracy describes all of the possible positions that a particle can exist in, so intuitively you would take the # of microstates to the power of the # of particles there are.
