MATH - URGENT!!!

posted by .

6 people are sitting around a table. Let x be the number of people sitting next to at least one woman and y be the number of people sitting next to at least one man. How many possible values of the ordered pair (x,y) are there? (For example, (6,0) is the pair if all 6 people are women, since all 6 people are sitting next to a woman, and 0 people are sitting next to a man.)

Really hard. Can I have some help?
