Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2how about YOU answer the questions? for the first one: there are 12 people  choose a seat  how many ways can that be filled ? ans = 12 now there are 11 people so the next seat  how many ways can THAT be filled? so there are 12 * 11 ways the first 2 seats can be filled Use your reasoning to work out how many way 12 seats can be filled....

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2the first person to sit has 12 choices the second has 11 choices (so there is 12 * 11 possible options for those 2) the 3rd person has 10 choices (so there are 12* 11*10 ways that 3 can sit) continue this logic for all 12 people.....

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1it is not 11! i guarantee you that say you have n people and we need k of them but we don't care how they will seat in how many way can they seat?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3according to the wolf: http://mathworld.wolfram.com/CircularPermutation.html 11! appears to be right if the governor is standing by himself....

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3ahhhh it is the clockwise vs counterclockwise thing..... 11!/2 = 19958400 it is half because clockwise n counterclockwise count as the same; even though it is not specified in ur prob there...

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3the wolf mentions that as "inequivalent when flipping the circle is allowed" n the eqn becomes P'n = (n1)!/2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0may be but should just memorize it without concept?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3the concept is fine but ur prob is not specific as to whether CW n CCW count as 1 or 2...it should have said something on that if its expecting u to give that ans

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0its probably because the governor is sitting on the floor so the table will be upside down and in upright positions both so there's how I will keep my concept steadfast!

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3@Ehsan18 i dont think dats wat ur teach has in mind when he wrote the prob! lol but whatever works for u is good :) the prob is not very clearly defined.
