I'm thinking I must have worded the problem incorrectly.<br /><br />There are only 10 possible arrangements. You can either write them out, or you can use 5 choose 2 formula. Here's the listing:<br />WWWMM<br />WWMWM<br />WMWWM<br />MWWWM<br />WWMMW<br />WMWMW<br />MWWMW<br />WMMWW<br />MWMWW<br />MMWWW<br /><br />Of those, only three have two women on both ends. So the probability is 30%.Anonymoushttps://www.blogger.com/profile/18153935609499338685noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-15628310.post-60274085776347738522009-09-02T08:44:08.652-04:002009-09-02T08:44:08.652-04:004/24 = 1/64/24 = 1/6Anonymousnoreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-15628310.post-40461265676825000782009-09-02T03:49:26.777-04:002009-09-02T03:49:26.777-04:00There could be 2 answers, depending on how you int...There could be 2 answers, depending on how you interpret the question. <br /><br />Scenario 1 : Man and woman pair are always together than the answer 1/8.<br />Scenario 2: Man and woman pair does not necessarily sit together then the answer is 1/6.<br /><br /><b>www.guessthelogo.blogspot.com</b>techiehttp://www.guessthelogo.blogspot.comnoreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-15628310.post-82857506656276148332009-09-01T22:33:00.802-04:002009-09-01T22:33:00.802-04:00I got 1/6 too (4 arrangements/24 possible).I got 1/6 too (4 arrangements/24 possible).Bradenhttps://www.blogger.com/profile/02561613173295281689noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-15628310.post-51109272531078379442009-09-01T17:04:21.586-04:002009-09-01T17:04:21.586-04:00Are they gay also?
