# Two question on Permutation and Combination

1.Find the number of ways in which a mixed double tennis game can be arranged between 10 players consisting of 6 men and 4 women.

My approach : Since,if every pair of selection of men and women gives rise to 4 matches so C(6,2) * C(4,2) * 4.

2.Find the number of ways in which a mixed double game can be arranged from amongst nine married couples, if no husband and wife play in the same game.

My approach : C(9,2) * C(7,2) * 4.

Now, this two questions comes from my test paper I would be grateful if somebody check whether this is correct or not since my answers doesn't matched to the given solution in the paper.

I get a final factor of 2 rather than 4. – Robin Chapman Oct 4 '10 at 9:08
@ Robin Chapman : Could you please explain your idea ? My idea is like this if we select M1,M2 and W1,W2 then the team can be constituted in 4 ways : M1,W1; M2,W2; M1,W2; M2,W1; – Quixotic Oct 4 '10 at 9:20
Debanjan, that looks like two possible matches to me. – Robin Chapman Oct 4 '10 at 9:56
Sorry i didn't get you :| – Quixotic Oct 4 '10 at 10:25
@ Debanjan: I think your list is the list of possible teams, not the list of possible matches (M1,W1)v(M2,W2), (M1,W2)v(M2,W1). – tttppp Oct 4 '10 at 11:45
