okay you have 4 choices tiles to use WWW WWB WBWetc... each will take up 3 slots and you have 10 slots only so we use 3 diff groups( groups as in WWW= 1grp, WBW=1grp an so on) first, taking up 9 slots, so the probability of arranging the 3 grps = 4X4X4 ; now we left with 1 last slot for the single white tile; and we can put the white tiles @ 4 different places( trying drawing out): so that gives us extra 4 different combos and therefore, total probability= 4X4X4X4

I know the answer. http://ptri1.tripod.com/ptreal1r.gif See this picture of a pascal's triangle. Now see the row 2 and sum all the numbers of row 2 You get 4! See the row 10 and get the sum of all the numbers in row 10. You get the answer!

one thing to note: question did not state if the tiles can be reused, if cannot reuse, answer is 4X3X2X4

what about Parthkohli's way ?
anonymous
  • anonymous
pascal triangle does not work here becasue the tiles are in groups of 3

The question is about 10*1

pls read the question again

Somebody please explain the question. It is confusing

  • anonymous
they want u to use the combos to fill up the 10 slots

They're asking us the different colour patterns in a ten by one rectangle. There are 1024 such patterns. Try it on your own.
ParthKohli
  • ParthKohli
They're asking us about the number of patterns possible in this case.

last line : "using THESE TILES " and i suppose THESE TILES refer to the 4 different colour patterns
anonymous
  • anonymous
the tiles are not individual they come in sets
ParthKohli
  • ParthKohli
All right. You're right, I'm wrong. Okay?

@kevinkeegan, 'these tiles' actually refer to the 3 tiles in the picture
anonymous
