  2. Ever tried wolfram alpha? The answer to your equation here though I've figured is 480. 48 possible arrangements of women to their roles and 10 to the men, in such a situation. to find the possible arrangement for the two combined we must then multiply as each combination counts. 48 times 1 = 48 add the 0 = 480.

  3. The men positions can be filled in (5)(4) or 20 ways.
    The women position can be filled in (12)(11)(10)(9) or 11880 ways
    Which is exactly what Steve had in
    P(5,2) * P(12,4) = 20(11880) = 237600 ways

    So go with Steve's answer.
