Question

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

Hint:

## The correct answer is: 46

### Detailed SolutionNow, 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.
