Similar to the hospital schedule in Example 2-11, suppose that an operating room needs to handle three knee, four hip, and five shoulder surgeries.

(a) How many different sequences are possible?

(b) How many different sequences have all hip, knee, and shoulder surgeries scheduled consecutively?

(c) How many different schedules begin and end with a knee surgery?

Step-by-Step Solution:

Solution

Step 1 of 3

a)We have to find how many different sequences are possible

The no.of possible outcomes for

3 knees, 4 hip and 5 hip, knee and shoulder surgeries are =

=27720

Hence there are 27720 possible sequences for 3 knees, 4 hip and 5 hip, knee and shoulder surgeries
