# In how many ways can six different rings be wear in four fingers?

^{6}P_{4}
- 6
^{4}
- 4
^{6}
^{6}C_{4}

^{6}P_{4}^{4}^{6}^{6}C_{4}Hint:

### We will first start by finding the way in which one ring can be worn in 4 fingers. Then we will do the same for 6 rings and then using the fundamental principle of counting we will find the total ways.

## The correct answer is: 4^{6}

### Detailed Solution

Now, we have been given that there are 6 rings of different types and we have to find the ways in which they can be worn in 4 fingers.

Now, we know that the number of options each ring has is 4, that is each ring has 4 fingers as their possible way as it can be worn in any one of 4 fingers.

Now, similarly the other rings will have four options as it has not been mentioned in the options that there has to be at least a ring in a finger. So, each ring has four options i.e. four fingers.

Now, we know that by the fundamental principle of counting there can be ways of wearing 6 rings.

It is important to note that we have used a basic fundamental principle of counting to find the total ways. Also, it is important to notice that each ring has 4 ways as it has not been given that each finger must have at least one ring. So, there can be 6 rings in a finger alone and remaining all the fingers empty.

Whenever we face such types of problems the key point is to make special arrangements for the people who are in need of it, then arrange the remaining. Now combination comes with permutation as there are possibilities of these 8 people sitting on one side to rearrange. Thus this concept into consideration, to get through the answer.
