@RadEn sorry my laptop overheated, and no not really. is there any way to do this using permutations?

would it be 19P2 + 18P2 which would be 648?

  • RadEn
it similar by permutation, but i think we have to divide it to 2 case, case I : Alice be a president, so the rest is 19P2 case II : Bob be a president, so the rest is 19P2 so, total ways = 2 * 19P2
