8. The crew of a rowing team of 8 members is to be chosen from 12 men (M1, M2, Â…., M12) and 8 women (W1, W2,Â…., W8), such that there are two rows, each row occupying one the two sides of the boat and that each side must have 4 members including at least one women. Further it is also known W1 and M7 must be selected for one of its sides while M2, M3 and M10 must be selected for other side. What is the number of ways in which rowing team can be arranged.
SoL:
We need two person for one side and 1 women for the another side. We select that women in 7 ways. Now that second side people can sit in 7x4! ways.
Now for the first side we need two people from the remaining 14. So this can be done in 14C2 ways and this side people can sit in 4C2Ã—4! ways.
Again the first group may take any of the two sides. So total ways are 2Ã—7Ã—4!Ã—14C2Ã—4!

11. Seven different objects must be divided among three persons. In how many ways this can be done if at least one of them gets exactly one object.
Sol: Division of m+n+p objects into three groups is given by (m+n+p)!m!Ã—n!Ã—p!
But 7 = 1 + 3 + 3 or 1 + 2 + 4 or 1 + 1 + 5
So The number of ways are (7)!1!Ã—3!Ã—3!Ã—12! + (7)!1!Ã—2!Ã—4! + (7)!1!Ã—1!Ã—5!Ã—12! = 70 + 105 + 21 = 196
12. George while driving along the highway saw road markers which are at equal distances from each other. He crosses the markers every 20 seconds. If he increases his speed by x meters per second, he crosses the markers at every 15 seconds. But if he increases his speed by y meters per second, he crosses the marker at every 10th second. If y-x = 40 meters per second, then what is the distance between two markers.
Sol: Let speed be =z m/s then Distance= 20z m
(z+x)15=20z; (z+y)10=20z
Also given that y - x = 40
solving we get 20z=1200
13. How many different 9 digit numbers can be formed from the number 223355888 by re-arranging its digits so that the odd digits occupy even position?
Sol: Odd places are 4 and these are occupied by 3355. So this can be done in 4!/ (2! 2!) = 6
There are 5 even numbers which have to be placed at 5 odd places. So 5!/(2!3!) = 10 ways
so total number of ways of arranging all these numbers are 10 * 6 = 60 ways
