How many ways can 8 boys be arranged in a circle if 3 boys cannot sit next to each other?
Well, I don't actually have the correct answer, but this is how I solved it:
Total Ways the Boys Can Be Arranged - 3 Boys Sitting Together = Ways The 3 Boys Cannot Sit Together
So, I did:
(8-1)! - (5! x 3!) = 4320 ways
I think this is wrong though. If someone would be able to solve it and explain the reasoning behind it, that would be awesome!
