    "I remember doing this problem a few days back.. you mathmate and me" by that logic answer should be 55C7 which is not in options

    9 stations between A and B from where passengers get on. So there are 9+8+7+6+5+4+3+2+1=45 ways to buy tickets, depending on where the passenger gets on. Now there are 7 passengers, so can you do the rest?

    You don't need a ticket to go from B to B!

    Oh, if you mean getting on at A, that's also excluded, it says passengers get on between A and B.

    Example: |dw:1442320549526:dw| Say there are 3 stations between A and B, AND if passengers get on at the intermediate stations ONLY, then the number of tickets equal Numbers like #2 means second station after A. 3 (#1-#2, #1-3,#1-B)+ 2 (#2-#3, #2-B) + 1 (#3-B) =6 If there are 3 passengers, then there are 6C3 ways to buy tickets.
