Question: In a game of chance after 12 rounds I have 3 wins and 9 losses. What are the possible number of sequence of outcomes after the first 5 rounds.
Approach: W W W and L L L L L L L L L So total ways of arranging this in 5 rounds is 12P5 and since there is repetition divide it by 3!x9!. Obviously there is something wrong with the approach. Could someone point that out and explain
