who can come to save me...............
12 girls try out for a hockey team. two can play only in goal, 4 girls can play only on defence, and the rest can play either centre or forward. In how many different ways can the coach make up the starting line-up?
(the answer is 240, basicly, i don't understand the question well)
thank you for any help`````````
They may ask you a question along the lines of, "How many combinations of ??? if they pull the goalie?"
If they ask that, when a goalie is pulled from the game, the team is allowed to replace the goalie with 1 player. They usually put them on offense. Keep that in mind if you run across a question like that. Therefore, the total amount of players on the ice does not change, but individual combos of offense/defense/goalies will change.
