F(4,3) means - "4" toys to "3" children so that each child receives at the most 2 toys.
There is no restriction on minimum number of toys per child.
Possibilities are:
Everyone gets 1 toy, and 1 remaining toys to be given to any one of 3 children = 3 possiblities
2 children get 2 toys each and one gets 0. Or in easier words, possibilities of a child getting 0 = 3 possiblities

Total = 6 possibilities.

Ans B it is.

Not sure if we are still preparing for GMAT

Anyway, for atleast 1 box to contain green ball and green balls to be consecutive numbered.
We need to calculate for each case one by one..
If only 1 green ball:
We have 6 places to place the green ball = 6C1 = 6
when 2 green balls:
We have 6 places, 2 green balls to be placed together = 5C2 = 5
when 3 green balls:
We have 6 places, 3 green balls to be placed together = 4C3 = 4
when 4 green balls:
We have 6 places, 4 green balls to be placed together = 3C2 = 3
when 5 green balls:
We have 6 places, 5 green balls to be placed together = 2C1 = 2
when all 6 green balls:
We have 6 places, 6 green balls (to be placed together) = 1

Hence total number of possibilities = 6+5+4+3+2+1 = 21

Ans B it is.

A detailed Official explanation will follow after few attempts by GMAT clubbers!

Lets decipher statements one by one.
a,b,c are distinct and among {2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9 10}
Exactly one of ab,bc and ca is odd => 2 among a,b,c are odd and one is even but we dont know which ones are odd and which one is even.
abc is multiple of 4 => since two numbers are odd, only one is even. and that one is a multiple of 4. only possibilities for such even number in the set {4,8}
arithmetic mean of a and b is an integer => a+b is even => a and b both are odd.
So now we know a,b are odd and thus could be from {3,5,7,9} and c is even and could be from{4,8}

arithmetic mean of a, b and c is also integer = sum of a+b+c is a multiple of 3.
if C is 4: possibilities for a and b {3,5} ,{5,9}
if C is 8: possibilities for a and b {3,7}, {7,9}

Therefore total possibilities = 4

Ans A it is.

$$2^5 * 3^6 * 5^2 = 2* (2^2 * 3^3 * 5^1) ^2$$
=> number of perfect square factors= (2+1)*(3+1)*(1+1) = 24

Ans B it is.

A) 600 km
B) 1000 km
C) 1100 km
D) 1200 km
E) 1300 km

Check the attached picture.
Plane flying north travels 1000 km, plan flying east travels 600 km.
Hence distance between two planes = $$\sqrt{(1000^2+600^2)}$$ = approx 1200 km

Ans D it is.

Re: Tough: The number of ways of arranging n students in a row [#permalink]

### Show Tags

15 Nov 2012, 20:29
10 students = 5 boys & 5 girls => 2*5!*5! (total arrangement)

11 students = 5 boys & 6 girls / 6 boys & 5 girls (only one will be considered) => 6! * 5! (total arrangement)

6! * 5! = (3*2*5!)*5! = 3*(2*5!*5!*) which is 200% increase in the total arrangement.

Hope this helps!

Choices:
A. 12
B. 8
C. 9
D. 10
E. 7

First thing to notice is: if we are able to arrange n students such that no two boys sit together and no two girls sit together, that means boys and girls will sit in alternate positions.
Second point to notice: we are also able to arrange n+1 students such that no two boys sit together and no two girls sit together.

What it means is that n is even and 'girls & boys' or 'boys & girls' can take alternate seats.
And n+1 is odd and girl & boys take alternate seats starting from whoever is more in number.

(Note: if n were to be odd, we wouldnt have been able to arrange n+1 students in alternate seats.)
------
Solving the problem:

Now lets assume n =2k. (for ease in calculation and formatting, formatting fractions is \$#@.. I'm sure you get it )
Number of arrangement in first case = 2 * k!*k!
(boy or girl can take first seat hence 2, k boys (or girls) in k seat hence k!)

Number of arrangement in second case = (k+1)!*k!
(whoever is k+1 (boy or girl) must take first seat and be arranged in alternate k+1 seat hence (k+1)!, rest k boys (or girls) in k seat hence k!)

Coming back to the problem statement:
Number of arrangement in second case = 3* Number of arrangement in first case
=>$$(k+1)!*k! = 3*( 2*k!*k!)$$
=>$$(k+1)*k!*k! = 3*( 2*k!*k!)$$
=>$$(k+1) = 3*2$$
=>$$k=5$$
Hence n =2k =10

Ans D it is!
