Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I don't quite get the Q:( In how many ways you can place them `in a circle`?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1i still don't understand what they mean by placing these squares into a circle. Can someone explain to me what is exactly happening?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2example assume the colored circles are objects \(\large \color{black}{\begin{align} &\normalsize \text{in how many ways can u place the objects in a circle} \hspace{.33em}\\~\\ \end{align}}\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2do u understand now ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1All I can tell you is that if you rearrange them in different order, then the number of these rearrangements is going to be equivalent to: \(\large\color{black}{ \displaystyle 8{\rm P}8=\frac{8!}{(88)!} =40320 }\) But I am not sure how much that relates to the question, because I still don't actually understand the case in the question.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2is the answer \(8!\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so i was right then? you are asking about the number of all possible permutations of these objets

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1wait, you are saying now the answer is actually 7!, (not 8!) ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Maybe you are placing 7 of these circles, into the remaining circle, and want to find the number of the permutations of the 7 circles' placement into that remaining circle?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1becuase I don't really see how 8P8 can be equal to 7! must be we missed the correct interpretation of the Q
