Mathematics
Tutor: None Selected Time limit: 1 Day

A nursing student can be assigned to 1 of 6 different floors each day. How many different ways can she be assigned during a 5-day work week?

First day, any of the 6 floors can be assigned = 6

Second day, remaining 5 floors can be assigned

So no: of ways the floors can be assigned in the 5 day period = 6*5*4*3*2 = 720 ways

Please let me know if you have any questions and best me if you are satisfactory.
