Permutations: Level 4 Challenges


How many 5 digit numbers can be formed if either
(a) every successive digit exceeds its predecessor, or
(b) every successive digit is smaller than its predecessor.

Detail: Leading 0's don't count, aka 04521 is not a 5-digit number.

In how many ways can 4 boys (A, B, C, D) and 4 girls (W, X, Y, Z) be seated in a row, such that all the girls do not sit together?

Suppose \(3\) married couples are randomly seated around a circular table. (It is not required that the members of any couple must be seated together.) The probability that no spouses are seated next to one another is \(\dfrac{a}{b}\), where \(a\) and \(b\) are positive coprime integers. Find \(a + b\).

Alice, Benedict, Calvin, Dennis and Evelyn attended a party. At the end of the night, they each randomly grabbed a left shoe and a right shoe. What is the probability that each person left with exactly one of their own shoes?

Note: If the probability is 1%, enter it as 0.01.
