Generalized Bernouli Trials Consider the collection of all possible sequences of A’s, B’s and C’s, in which there are 3 A’s, 2 B’s, and 5C’s. Two examples of such sequences are shown below. ACABCCBACC CBABAACCCC We want to answer the question, “how many different such sequences are there?” To answer this question we first consider a different, but related question. Suppose that we number the A’s from 1 to 3, the B’s

from 1 to 2 and the C’s from 1 to 5, and consider the collection of numbered sequences of the letters. Examples of such numbered sequences are: A 2 C 1 A 1 B 2 C 4 C 5 B 1 A 3 C 2 C 3 C 2 B 2 A 1 B 1 A 3 A 2 C 4 C 3 C 5 C 1 How many different numbered sequences of 3 A’s, 2 B’s, and 5C’s are there? Since the numbering operation results in 10 completely distinct (distinguishable) objects, there are just 10! (10 factorial) different permutations of their ordering, so there are 10! Different numbered sequences.

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
