QUESTION: 11

How many permutations can be formed from the letters of the word " DRAUGHT" if both vowels may not be separated?

Solution:

The vowels are never being separated.

So, vowels a & u are taken together and considered as one letter.

So, there are 6 letters in the word draught

The number of ways in which it can be arranged are given by =6!=720.

But the internal arrangement can be done of a and u in 2 ways.

Hence the total arrangements are 720×2=1440.

You have to make a choice of 4 balls out of one red one blue and ten white balls. The numbers of ways in which this can be done to include the red ball but exclude the blue ball always is ________.

Solution:

Total balls = 11

We have to choose 4 balls out of one red one blue and ten white balls.

Excluding blue ball, we are left with 10 balls, one red and ten white balls

Number of balls to be chosed except blue ball is = ^{10}C_{3}

QUESTION: 16

Solution:

QUESTION: 18

How many combinations can be formed of eight counters marked 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 taking them 4 at a time, there being at least one odd and one even counter in each combination?

Solution:

We have,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8

Total counters = 8

Taken at a time = 4

The total combinations without restrictions= 8C4 = 70

Odd = 1,3,5,7

Even = 2,4,6,8

We have to find out those combinations which contain at least one even and one odd counter i.e. those neither can have all 4 even counters nor all 4 odd counters.

Let's first find the the no. of combinations with restrictions i.e. which contains all even or all odd counters.

So, the no. of combination which have all 4 odd counters = 4C4 = 1

Similarly, the no. of combination which have all 4 even counters = 4C4 = 1

Hence, the required no. combinations which contain at least one even and one odd counters = Total - Restricted combinations

= 70–1–1

= 68 Ans.

QUESTION: 19

Find the number of ways in which a selection of four letters can be made from the letters of the word 'PROPORTION,

Solution:

Given the word is

PROPORTION

When

Number of P is =2

Number of O is =3

Number of R is =2

Number of I is =1

Number of T is =1

Number of N is =1

Let us frist find the number of selections.

Case 1:- All four letters distinct = number of ways will be 4×6C4=4!×4!(6−4)!6!=2!6×5×4×3×2×1=360

Case 2:- Three letters same and one letter distinct, then no. of ways = 3!4!5C1=3!4×3!×5=20

Case 3:- Two letters of one type and the other two letters of other type, then no. of ways(out for P,R and O)=3C2×4C2=3×2!×2!4!=18

Case 4:-two letters same and other two letters are different.then, no. of ways. = 3C1×5C2=3×10=30×2!4!=360

Now according to given question,

Total number of selections=15+5+3+30=53

QUESTION: 20

Solution:

Total no. of balls =12

They said to exclude both red&blue

then, remaining total balls=10

out of this 4 should be selected

therefore, Req. answer=^{10}c4

QUESTION: 23

QUESTION: 25

Find the number of ways in which an arrangement of 4 letters can be made from the word

Solution:

The word contain 11 letters with repetition of letters.

We can choose 4 letters by

i) all the four letters are distinct

ii) Two distinct and two alike

iii) Two alike of one kind and two alike of other kind

i) 8 different letters are M, A, T, H, E, I, C, S

This can be chosen by ^{8}C_{4} × 4! = 1680

ii) Three pairs alike letters MM, AA, TT. One pair can be chosen by ^{3}C_{1 }= 3 ways

Remaining two letters can be chosen by^{ 7}C_{2 }

Each such groups has 4 letters out of which 2 are alike.

Hence, it can be chosen by 4!/2!

Total number of ways = 3 × ^{7}C_{2 }× 4!/2! = 756

iii) Three pairs of 2 alike letters. Two pairs can be chosen by ^{3}C_{2}

^{3}C_{2} groups of 4 letters each.

There are 4 letters of which 2 alike of one kind and two alike of other kind in each group.

That can be arranged by 4!/2! × 1/2!

Total number of ways = ^{3}C_{2} × 4!/2! × 1/2! = 18

Total number of ways = 1680 + 756 + 18 = 2454

QUESTION: 26

Solution:

QUESTION: 29

In how many ways 21 red balls and 19 blue balls can be arranged in a row so that no two blue balls are together?

Solution:

As there are 21 red balls and 19 blue balls.

So there can be 22 different positions for blue balls ( because we can't arrange two blue balls together).

Applying concept,

Total ways = 22C19

= 22!/19!(22-19)!

= 22!/19!*3!

= 22*21*20*19!/19!*3!

= 22*7*10

= 1540.

QUESTION: 30

In forming a committee of 5 out of 5 males and 6 females how many choices you have to made so that there are 3 males and 2 females? How many choices you have to make if there are 2 males?

Solution:

QUESTION: 31

In forming a committee of 5 out of 5 males and 6 females how many choices you have to made so that there are 3 males and 2 females? How many choices you have to make if there is at least one female?

Solution:

5 males and 6 females = 11 people. A committee of 5 out of 11 people can be selected in ^{11}C_{5} =462 ways. At least female basically means that it can’t be an all-committee group. In this case, there is only 1 way to make an all-male committee, so just remove that case and you have 462–1=461 ways to choose a committee with at least one female.

QUESTION: 32
