In how many ways can the numbers 1 through 5 be entered once each into the five boxes below so that all the given inequalities are true?


$\boxed{\phantom{X}}>\boxed{\phantom{X}}>\boxed{\phantom{X}}<\boxed{\phantom{X}}<\boxed{\phantom{X}}$

The middle one must be the smallers so the middle one is 1

Now counting.

54123

53124

52134

43125

42135

32145

 

so I get 6 ways

 

LaTex for the boxes:

\boxed{\phantom{X}}>\boxed{\phantom{X}}>\boxed{\phantom{X}}<\boxed{\phantom{X}}<\boxed{\phantom{X}}

 

That is interesting. I shall try and remember it.
