Try - (25 choose 18) ??

- Discrete math -
**Reiny**, Wednesday, October 3, 2012 at 9:17pmThink of it this way:

Every time all the 18 posts are filled, there will be a set of 7 guards left out.

So the question becomes, how many set of 7 from 25 can we find, which is

C(25,7) or C(25,8) , both yield the same answer.

BTW, your clarification in brackets is a contradiction

you probably meant to say

((That is, they are NOT distinguishable.)
