    Re: Permutations and combinations

    That's pretty straightforward, isn't it? Assuming that the principle is NOT one of the teachers, this is simply a matter of determining how many ways you can seat 5 people, how many ways you can seat 4 people, how many ways you can seat 6 people, and multiplying them together.
