Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Tina and Karen are are among the 4 colleagues that can get an "X" office, 4 possibilities for each creates a total of 24 possibilities. Tine alone has two chances of getting an "X," and so does Karen thus creating a 4/24 possibility. Reducing would be 1/6, if I'm not mistaken  mathematically speaking.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0there are two ways to assign Karen, Tina to the Xs (2! = 2) there are two ways to assign the others to the remaining squares (2! = 2) so there are four ways to assign them such that Karen, Tina get Xs there are twentyfour ways to assign them without any such constraints (4! = 24) so only 4/24 = 1/6 of these ways will assign Karen, Tina to the Xs

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you knew about 1/6, but that could be a wrong answer even if you were told that it was the correct one. we prove in math, not pick up from someone's answer.
