Thank you for using the timer!
We noticed you are actually not timing your practice. Click the START button first next time you use the timer.
There are many benefits to timing your practice, including:
8C3 = 8C5
Position of white balls is fixed. Since they are identical, number of ways to arrange them is 1.
We have 6 spaces in btw the white balls and 1 each to the left and right end to accomodate the black ball. So 8 places in total to arrange 5 balls
8C5 (or 8C3)
there are 8 spaces availale so that no two black balls are together. that means 8! arrangements. but there are 5 identical black balls and 3 identical spaces. that`s why we have to divide by 5! and 3!. 8!/(5!3!). _________________
