The number of ways in which 6 men and 5 women can dine at a round table, if no two women are to sit together, is given by

Solution :

The number of ways to n people on circular table is (n-1)!

So, first we fix position of men, the number of ways to sit men = 5!

Now, women can sit in the gaps between men, there are 6 gaps between 5 mens,

So, women can sit in \(^6P_5\) ways

Hence, total number of ways = 5! x \(^6P_5\) = 5! x 6!
