hi ganesh

Here lies the reader who will never open this book. He is forever dead.

Hey Ganesh, 841 & 842 both had me completely stumped. Would you please show the method of solution for them when you post the solution. I assume they are rather simple combinations and/or permutations, but I am having trouble figuring out how to recognize which are the correct applications for these problems.
