    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!

    They're asking us the different colour patterns in a ten by one rectangle. There are 1024 such patterns. Try it on your own.
