Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0It's not completely clear to me what you're asking. So they are ranked 1 through 6 I'm geussing. Are you saying that the top 4 are selected, and then we want to find how many different ways we can rank those preselected top 4?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0well if you want the different arrangements of the top 4 and they are preselected, you would have the permutations on 4 objects which is 4!=4*3*2*1=24

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0If they mean there are 6 rankings and you pick 4 people and want to know the possibilities of ranking for them it is 6*5*4*3=360. I geuss you have to interpret the question

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I would geuss they wanted the 6*5*4*3, but they said how many possibilities for the top 4, which to me means youre only permuting 1st 2nd 3rd 4th place which is 24
