Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0from the way you wrote the problem, I doubt the arrangment on the shelf matters. I'd say the answer is 15 +20 +15 =50

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2it should matter...when you are choosing you are selecting 2 or 3 or 4 specific books to be on the first shelf....if you are doing this where order does not matter then there are only 3 ways to do it.
