Posted by Morgan Bissett-Tessier on Tue, Feb 09, 2021 @ 01:19 PM

It is common for GMAT students looking for a 700+ score to have many questions about GMAT combinatorics problems. These are the GMAT questions that ask you to count up all the possible arrangements of individuals and groups in a variety of situations: How many ways can 5 men and 5 women be ordered in a line?
