I have a task in which I can't really see what I'm doing wrong. The recommended answer differs from mine and it kind of makes sense to me, but I can't see what's wrong with my solution. The problem is as follows;
In a family of 4 all the 7 deadly sins are present. Every family member exercises(?) atleast 1 of the 7 sins, but there are no sins that two distinct family members 'exercise'. (The original problem formulation is not in english, sorry)
The task is to find out how many combinations there are if no single family member can exercise both greed and gluttony.
Basically what I did was to find out the total amount of combinations without taking the constraint into consideration (Surjection from a 7-subset to a 4-subset; $4! * S(7,4)$. After that I wanted to subtract the 'illegal' combinations. The way I figured I would find them out is as follows:
There are 4 possible family members that can exercise both greed and gluttony. After that we have 5 additional sins to 'hand out' amongst all the remaining people (including the one that we already 'handed' both gluttony and greed) so I figure'd we'd then get the total amount of 'illegal' combinations as $4 * 4! * S(5,4)$ but in the recommended solution the amount of illegal combinations was $4! * S(6,4)$ - which I understand (I guess you 'group up' both gluttony and greed as one sin and count the surjections).
But I don't understand why my solution is wrong. Any help greatly appreciated, sorry for the wall of text!
