Marvin the fly starts at $(0,0).$ Each step, Marvin moves one unit right or one unit up. He is trying to get to the point $(5,7)$. However, at $(4,3)$ there is a frog that will eat him if he goes through that point. In how many ways can Marvin reach $(5,7)$?

There are 792 - 4*6 = 768 for Marvin to reach (5,7).
