Solutions

The word 'OPTICAL' contains 7 different letters.
When the vowels OIA are always together, they can be supposed to form one letter.
Then, we have to arrange the letters PTCL (OIA).
Now, 5 letters can be arranged in 5! = 120 ways.
The vowels (OIA) can be arranged among themselves in 3! = 6 ways.
Required number of ways = (120 x 6) = 720.

Solutions

Explanation: nPrnCr=3024126$\frac{^nP_r}{^nC_r} = \frac{3024}{126}$
nPr=n!(nr)!$^nP_r = \frac{n!}{(n-r)!}$
nCr=n!(nr)!×r!$^nC_r = \frac{n!}{(n-r)!×r!}$
Hence [n!(nr)!]÷[n!(nr)!×r!]$[\frac{n!}{(n-r)!}]÷[\frac{n!}{(n-r)!×r!}]$ = 24
24 = r!
Hence r = 4
Now nP4 = 3024
n!(n4)!=3024$\frac{n!}{(n-4)!} = 3024$
n(n-1)(n-2)(n-3) = 9.8.7.6
n = 9.

If 10Pr = 720, then r is equal to

Solutions

A committee of 5 out of 6 + 4 - 10 can be made in 10C5 = 252 ways
If no woman is to be included, then number of ways = 5C5 = 6
the required number = 252 - 6 = 246
