# Four objects in a set of ten objects are alike. Find the number of ways of arranging them in a circular order. - Mathematics and Statistics

Sum

Four objects in a set of ten objects are alike. Find the number of ways of arranging them in a circular order.

#### Solution

There are 10 objects.
These 10 objects can be arranged in a circular order in (10 – 1)! = 9! ways.
∴ n = 9!
Out of 10 objects, 4 are alike.
r = 4
∴ Required number of arrangements

= ("n"!)/("r"!)

= (9!)/(4!)
