Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I can't be sure of the answer. To convince me you would need to show working as well.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1In my textbook 36 is the given answer. But I don't think it's right, now that siddhant and another guy I knew answered 96 instead.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Actually since you're not sure, I think I should post my solution. I may be wrong. So, No. of cases with no two C's together and no two S's together = No. of cases with no two S's together ( C's can me arranged anyhow)  No. of cases with no two S's together ( C's being together now)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2dw:1340389706521:dw Writing the letters with spaces between them. And only putting S's in the spaces so as to ensure their seperation. Total ways of doing this ( S's together C's anyhow) : 5C2 * 4!/2!
