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:
On seat one you can put any of the 4 boys, on seat two you can put any of the 3 girls, on seat 3 you can put any of the remaining 3 boys, on seat four you can put any of the remaining 2 girls, seat five you can put any of the remaining 2 boys, and on seats six and seven you can put the one remaining girl and boy. You can write this representation in the following form:
In how many arrangements can a teacher seat 3 girls and 4 boys in a row of 7 seats if the girls are to have the secon, fourth and sixth seats?
(A) 12 (B) 36 (C) 144 (D) 288 (E) 5,040
G can be arranged in 3! ways B can be arranged in 4! ways
Therefore 3! x 4! = 144
