**Sarah**, Thursday, September 29, 2011 at 4:28pmIn the first seat: There are 8 possibilites for who sits there.

In the second seat: There is only 1 possibility (the other member of the couple).

In the third seat: There are 6 possibilites for who sits there.

In the fourth seat: There is only 1 possibility (the other member of the couple).

In the fifth seat: There are 4 possibilities for who sits there.

In the sixth seat: There is only 1 possibility (the other member of the couple).

In the seventh seat: There are 2 possibilities for who sits there.

In the eighth seat: There is only 1 possibility (the last member of the last couple).

Answer: 8*1*6*1*4*1*2*1 = 384 different possibilities!

**Sarah**, Thursday, September 29, 2011 at 10:11pmYes, if the couples were not required to sit next to each other then the number of possibilities would be (8*7*6*5*4*3*2*1) = 40,320. I've taken Statistics at Georgia Tech and this was the fun part!!
