Total number of ways irrespective of room for printers = 10 ^ 5
= 100000

Now, the restriction is atmost we can arrange 3 printers per office

we will subtract the possibility of arranging 5 or 4 printers per office to get the desired result

for 5 printers = 5C5 * 10C1 = 10 ---------- (1)

for 4 printers = (5C4 * 10C1) * (1C1 * 9C1) = 450 ---------- (2)

adding (1) & (2) = 460

when we subtract above from 100000 gives 99540

Is this Correct????????
