Solution

Let A and B be two sides of the table 9 guests sit on either side of the table in 9! × 9! ways.

Out of 18 guests, three particular persons decide to sit namely inside A and two on the other side B. remaining guest = 18 – 3 – 2 = 13.

From 13 guests we can select 6 more guests for side A and 7 for the side.

Selecting 6 guests from 13 can be done in 13C6 ways.

Therefore total number of ways the guest to be seated = 13C6 × 9! × 9!

`= (13!)/(6!(13 - 6)!) xx 9! xx 9!`

`= (13!)/(6! xx 7!) xx 9! xx 9!`
