 Five people are going out to dinner and all are of different ages. What is the probability that they will sit around a circular table in the correct order of age, regardless of direction?2 Answers1/12 This is a permutation question. 5/5 people can sit in the first seat and then from there are 4 seats. On both sides of the first seat, there will be 2 ways of ordering people around the first person so you multiply by 2/4. There after it will be multiplied by 1/3, 1/2, 1/1. Simply put: (5*2) / (5!) or (5*2*1*1*1) / (5*4*3*2*1) = 10/120 = 1/12 [This explanation is not the best. There are better explanations to this same question on this site with the same answer.]1/12 4! for all the possible kinds of seats around a table and 2 for the ordering seat. 2/4! = 1/12

As he pulled them apart, he kept one sock for himself and gave the other to the other man so that each man ended up with the same colors of socks he started with: six red and six white. HidePresumably, the socks are bunched up in pairs. So take one sock from each pair and split them evenly between the two people
