in how many ways can the letters of mahabharat be arranged so that, b and t are never together and m,a,t,h occurs at first four places

  • maths -

    There are 4! ways to arrange m,a,t,h in the 1st 4 places.

    Of these, 3! have t as the last letter.

    The remaining letters are aaabhr, which can be arranged in 6!/3! ways.

    So, we have (4!-3!)(6!/3!) ways with t not in the 4th place.

    Add to that (3!)(6!/3! - 5!/3!) ways of having t in 4th place and b not in 5th place.

    Looks like 2760 ways to me.
    If that's incorrect, I'm sure you can find the flaw.
