56 P ( r + 6 ) : 54 P ( r + 3 ) = 30800 : 1
 56 P ( r + 6 ) 54 P ( r + 3 )
=
 30800 1
 56! (56 − (r + 6))!
 54! (54 − (r + 2))!
=
 30800 1
 56! (56 − r − 6)!
×
 (54 − r − 3)! (54)!
= 30800
 56 × 55 × (54)! × (51 − r)! (50 − r)! × (54)!
= 30800
 56 × 55 × (51 − r) (50 − r)! (50 − r)!
= 30800
 ⇒ 56 × 55 × (51 − r) = 30800
(51 − r) =
 30800 56 × 55
 ⇒ (51 − r) = 10 ⇒ r = 51 − 10 ⇒ r = 41

If m+nP2 = 56 and m-nP2=12 find m and n.

Solution » Hide/Show

 m + nP2 = 56
 ⇒ aP2 = 56
 a! (a − 2)!
= 56
 (a) (a − 1) (a − 2)! (a − 2)!
= 56
 ⇒ (a) (a − 1) = 56
 ⇒ (a) (a − 1) = 8 × 7
 ⇒ a = 8       → (3)

 m − nP2 = 12
 ⇒ bP2 = 12
 (b)! (b − 2)!
= 12
 (b)(b − 1) (b − 2)! (b − 2)!
= 12
 ⇒ (b) (b − 1) = 12
 ⇒ (b) (b − 1) = 4 × 3
 ⇒ b = 4           →   (4)

 (3) → a = 8 ⇒ m + n = 8       →  (5) (4) → b = 4 ⇒ m − n = 4       →  (6)
(5) + (6)    2 m = 12
m =
 12 2
m = 6
 (5) ⇒ m + n = 8 ⇒ 6 + n = 8 ⇒ n = 8 − 6 ⇒ n = 2
 ∴ (m , n) = (6 , 2)
