Solution Correction of analytical solution Comment 4 of 4 |

The division of the 9 digits 1...9 into 2 groups gives 11 (and not 6 ) possible groupings as follows :

      A                       B

   34678               1259

   34579               1268

   25678               1349

   24679               1358

   24589               1367

   23689               1457

   15679               2348

   14689               2357

   13789               2456

   12347              5689

   12356              4789

Therefore, the total different arrangements M will be :

        M= 5! * 4! * 11 = 31680

Additionaly - the total different pandigital perturbations excluding leading zeros should be :  9! * 9  and not 9!

Therefore the correct answer will be :

       ( 11* 5!* 4!)/(9!* 9) = 0.9700176%
