Eight balloons (two blue, two green, two yellow, and two red) are randomly arranged in a line. Balloons of the same color are indistinguishable from one another.

Find the total number of possible arrangements

The number of total arrangements is 8!/4 * 2! = 8! / 8 = 7! = 5040.

There are 5040 total arrangements.

The number of arrangements in which the first four balloons have different colors is 4! * 4! = 24 * 24 = 576.

There are 576 total arrangements.

Hope this helped!!
