since it says will hold instead of can hold..i assume the former
it would be interesting if it was the latter though
Then this question is beyond my thinking abilities. :S
If it means "exactly," then 2 + 4 + 5 ≠ 9 would be my answer.
didn't think of that. well then it would be maximum
what's the answer?
no idea
hmm it should be 5, if people are indistinguishable. lol. but if they aren't then i would have to do some math. C2 C4 C5 1 4 4 1 3 5 2 4 3 2 2 5 2 3 4
