Question

# The number of ways in which mn students can be distributed equally among m sections is-

## (mn)n    Hint:

## The correct answer is: ### Detailed SolutionIn this question, we have been asked to find the number of ways in which we can distribute mn students equally among m section. Now, we have been given that there are mn students in total and they have to be distributed equally among m sections.  For the second section, we will again choose n students but out of (mn – n) because n students have already been chosen for the first section. So, we get the number of ways of choosing n students for the second section as Similarly, for the third section, we have to choose n students out of (mn – 2n). So, we get the number of ways of choosing n students for the third section as And we will continue it in the same manner up to all mn students will not be divided into m section.So, for (m – 1)th section, we will choose n students from (mn – ( m – 2)n) student. So, we get the number of ways of choosing n students for (n – 1)th section, we get, And for the mth section, we get the number of ways for choosing students as, Hence, we can write the total number of ways of distributing mn students in m section as   And we can further write it as, While solving this question, the possible mistake one can make is by always choosing n students for all sections from mn students which is totally wrong because at a time one student can only be in 1 section. So, if n students are selected for 1 section then in the second section, we will choose from (mn – n).  #### With Turito Foundation. #### Get an Expert Advice From Turito.
