A table is in the shape of an isosceles triangle having three seats along each of the 3 sides of the triangle. In how many ways can 9 people sit across the table?

The solution says all seats are different but shouldn't the seats along the equal sides be considered same?

@nitish9693 any idea?

@akash12191 Drawing logic from what you said and the article makes sense.. Facing lil difficulty in various scenarios but I think I can draw the insight from it. Thanks a lot !

@avile6065 ya actually how a person sitting on a chair would view the others sitting around him is a better way to think of it rather than the number of chairs to his left/right..
