3 secretarial posiitons can be filled in 20x19x18 ways
4 sales position can be filled in 20x19x18x17 ways

Total number of ways= 20x20x19x19x18x18x17

IS THIS CORRECT?

If we had had 7 people for the seven positions, the answer would have been 7!/(3!*4!). But since we have 20 applicants, we should choose 7 from 20 at first=20C7.

Therefore, [20C7*7!]/[3!*4!]=2713200
