Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0View asa and bill as one person. Then, find the number of ways the four "people" can fill the seats. Then view bill and asa as one person, and do it again. Sum the two. Thats the total number of ways bill and asa can sit next to each other. Now, find the total number of ways the five students can sit in the row. The probability they sit next to each other is the the number of ways they can sit next to each other divided by the number of ways they can sit overall.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you can have AB, BA , and there are 4 places , so 4* 2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0there are 2 ways for AB to sit next to each other, they can move around in 4 different places, then there are 3! for the rest of the other people to sit

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0shut up omg. Look at the method i proposed. 2(4!)/(5!)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0well you treat AB as K, so you have K C D E , and how many ways can you reararnge that

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so you have K C D E , where K is AB, and you have 4! ways of rearranging that, but K is actually AB or BA, so 4! * 2!

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0treat AB as K, since they always sit next to each other, so you have K C D E , correct ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so how many ways to rearrange K C D E ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0right, but for each one of those arrangements, you have AB or BA

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0in other words, K can be AB or K can be BA

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so you have 24 with AB , and 24 with BA, so 24 + 24
