## How many ways are there for a horse race with five horses to finish if ties are possible?

After checking their work several times, they arrived at a total number of 541 finishes for a 5-horse race.

## How many ways can a three horse race finish including possible ties?

In this case any one of the 3 horses could finish first and, once you know who is first, the other two hourses can finish second and third or third and second. Hence there are 3 2 = 6 different ways the hourses can finish if there are no ties.

## How many ways are there for a horse?

All that remains is the 1 situation where all three horses tie for first. Thus, in total there are 6 + 3 + 3 + 1 = 13 different outcomes.

## How many ways can 9 horses finish a race?

= 5040. Nine horses are running in a race.

## How many ways can 4 cars finish a race?

28 x 27 x 26 x 25 = 491,400 ways the top 4 can finish if order is taken into account. There are 4 x 3 x 2 x 1 = 24 possible arrangements within any group of top 4 finishers, and there are 491,400 / 24 = 20,475 different possible combinations of cars finishing in the top 4 if order is not taken into account.

## How many ways can 8 horses finish a race?

There are 336 ways to have 8 horses place for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place. The work above demonstrates how one can simplify the problem using the permutation formula.

## How many ways are there for a horse race with four horses to Nish if ties are possible note any number of the four horses may tie?

Question 435686: How many ways are there for a horse race with four horses to finish if ties are possible?(Note: Any number of the four horses may tie.) My answer is 75, But I still doubt it.

## How many ways can 6 horses finish a race?

There are 720 possible results.

## How many different ways are there to rank 7 horses in a horse race?

There are 7 *6*5=210 total ways in which the 7 horses can come in 1st, 2nd, and 3rd.

## Is a race a permutation?

The easiest way to remember the difference between combinations and permutations is that for permutations, order matters, and for combinations, order does not matter. Since, when you are runing in a race, it matters what order you come in, you would be using permutations.

## What is a permutation vs combination?

A permutation is an act of arranging the objects or numbers in order. Combinations are the way of selecting the objects or numbers from a group of objects or collection, in such a way that the order of the objects does not matter.

## What is N in permutation formula?

n = total items in the set; r = items taken for the permutation; “!” denotes factorial. The generalized expression of the formula is, “How many ways can you arrange ‘r’ from a set of ‘n’ if the order matters?” A permutation can be calculated by hand as well, where all the possible permutations are written out.

## How many different ways can 10 different colored horses be positioned in a carousel?

In how many different ways can 10 different-colored horses be positioned in a carousel? 504 3628800 4032 362880.

## How many orders of finish are possible in a 7 horse race?

So, the answer is 7 times 6 times 5. Which means that you have a possible 210 possible triples in a 7 horse field, ( if no ties.)

## How many ways can 10 horses come in first second and third?

thus the combinations u = 10!/(10-3)!( 3!) = 120 possible combinations.
