Jordan and his three best friends are on a relay team. His relay team will run a race, where the first runner runs a lap, then the second, then the third, then the fourth.

Jordan is the fastest so he will run the fourth lap. How many different orders can the four team members run, assuming that Jordan runs the fourth lap?

Since Jordan's position is set.......the total possible arrangements are

 

3  ways to pick the runner in the first position

2  ways to oick the runner for the second position

1 way to select the rnner for the third position

 

So...3 * 2 * 1  =    6 different orders

 

 

cool cool cool
