Question

# Consider the following statements:

1. The number of ways of arranging m different things taken all at a time in which p m particular things are never together is m! – (m – p + 1)! p!.

2. A pack of 52 cards can be divided equally among four players in order in ways.

Which of these is/are correct?

- Only (1)
- Only (2)
- Both of these
- None of these

## The correct answer is: Both of these

### (1) Total number of ways of arranging m things = m!.

To find the number of ways in which p particular things are together, we consider p particular things as a group.

Number of ways in which p particular things are together = (m – p + 1)! p!

So, number of ways in which p particular things are not together

= m! – (m – p + 1)! p!

Total number of ways =

Hence, both of statements are correct.

The different ways in which items from a set may be chosen, usually without replacement, to construct subsets, are called permutations and combinations. When the order of the selection is a consideration, this selection of subsets is referred to as a permutation; when it is not, it is referred to as a combination. So the final answer is .
