**Re: train problem**
Sorry, ashish, we don't do want is commonly called "homework help" here.
I do sense however that you already know the answer:
" here is a easy one but i am still not getting ans..."
In case you don't have the answer, may be this might help you, and you must go deeper than I have given because I haven't thought this through properly mysself:
You have 7 exits, thus there are 7 combinations of from 0 to 4 people leaving at each
station (er .. at each station however there will in fact be more than 7 possible departures .. you may have ABCD leave, CD, or just E).
Hey! I'll go no further. If you have the answer, why not go to the FAQ, find out how to post a problem, and ... er .. sorry, but it will probably be posted on this site in about 60 days time.
For whatever reason you posted this here, I trust that you understand our philosophy and you have some appropriate guidance. |
