1) Say she doesn't need DL book, then she can choose in 6c3 ways = 20 ways Id she she chooses the DL book then in 5c1 ways = 5 ways Total = 20+5 = 25 ways

2) 10c5 ways when both (Radha and Mohan) are not chosen 10c5 ways = 252 ways and when both are chosen = 10c3ways = 120 ways => total = 372 ways

Please help me out with the below scenario,

Suppose I have a set of duplicate numbers such as S={1,2,3,1,2,3}

and out of those I have to select 4 numbers such that their rearrangement is not counted.

For e.g in this case for selection 4 numbers

1,2,3,1

1,2,3,2

1,2,3,3

1,1,2,2

2,2,3,3

1,1,3,3

so total 6 cases are possible.

while selecting 5 numbers

1,2,3,1,2

1,2,3,1,3

1,2,3,2,3

only three cases are possible.

Can some please come up with a solution for the question and the set can be of any number with equal number of duplicates in it.
