Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1This is how i do this question: Depending on how many different parts, i make 4 underscores, _ _ _ _ and fill each number up with 4, 3, 2, 1 4 actors can tryout for the first part, 3 actors try out for the second part (because one actor get the first part so he doesnt count), 2 actors tryout for the 3rd part (because another actor gets the 2nd part) ..etc get the drift? so in the end you do 4X3X2X1= 24 assignments is that the answer barlow?
