# In how many ways can 5 red, 3 yellow and 4 green discs be arranged in a row if the discs of the same colour are indistinguishable?

Total number of discs= 5 Red + 3 Yellow+ 4 green

n = 12

Since colours are repeating so we use the formula .

Here p1=5 , p2=3, p3= 4

Total ways

= 12× 11× 10× 7× 3

= 27720 ways
