Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Remember that a circular permutation is (n – 1)! Break the seating process into "activities" like this: 1) Choose the people who are seated at each table. C(8,4 = 8•7•6•5/4•3•2•1 = 70). When you choose for 1 table the other four automatically go to the other table. 2) Arrange the 4 people at table A: (4 – 1)! = 3! = 6 3) Arrange the 4 people at table B. Also 3! =6 So answer is C(8,4)•3!•3! = 70•6•6 = 2520
