so I guess we have to consider the scenario when occurs on the second throw.
when 6 occurs on the first throw we have to discount these arrangements

- welshfella

* when 1 occurs

- welshfella

so that is -4!

- mathmath333

negative 4! ?

- welshfella

No sorry - we just ignore those

- welshfella

if no 6 on first throw there are 4 * 4! ways right?

- mathmath333

how does that come

- imqwerty

is the answer (5!)^2 ?

- welshfella

well you have any number between 2 and 5 on first throw and there are 4! arrangements of the other 4

in book it is given as 6!/2=360

- imqwerty

sry i did a silly mistake
well-
|dw:1442759335031:dw|
like this make cases nd then u get tota ways= 5!+4*4!+3*4!+2*4!+1*4!=360

- mathmath333

A hint is given: out of total 6! half would have 1 before 6

- welshfella

if 1 is middle number there are 72 ways
also if 72 for 2 is 4th
so we have 120 + 96 + 72 + 72 = 360
