Five people are passing a ball amongst themselves. The ball starts with Alonzo. Each person who has the ball passes it onto someone else. After the eighth pass, the ball returns to Alonzo. Find the number of possible sequences of passes.

There are 405 possible sequences of passes.

This is wrong.

Is it the LCM(5, 8) = 40 passes?

This is also incorrect.

5^6 is the correct answer i think

I am sorry, this is also wrong.
