If we number the chairs from left to right,the arrangements will be possible if and only if boys occupy the odd places and girls occupy the even places in the row. The six odd places from 1 to 11 may filled in by 6 boys in 6p6 ways.---(1) Similarly, the five even Places from 2 to 10 may be filled in by 5 girls in 5p5 ways.---(2) Hence, by the fundamental principle, the total number of required arrangements ?(1)x(2)= 6p6 x 5p5 = 6! X 5! = 720x120 = 86400Read More
