3 AnswersVideo & Online Games9 years ago### How many ways are there to distribute 6 cookies to 7 people?

The cookies can be distributed in anyway (integer amounts tho). I got the answer as 5010, but I feel unsure about it, i think it should be 5040 (7!/(7-6)!).

I did this:

ways cookies could be distributed:

6

5,1

4,2

3,3

4,1,1

3,2,1

2,2,2

3,1,1,1

2,2,1,1

2,1,1,1,1

1,1,1,1,1,1

( i dont include ones like 1,2,3, because by covering all the ways 3,2,1 could be shared out u cover the ways 1,2,3 could be shared out.)

With 1 share, there are 7 possibiles

With 2 shares, there are 7*6 possible combinations, 42

With 3 shares. there are 7*6*5 possible ways of sharing them, 210

With 4 shares, there are 7*6*5*4 possible ways of sharing them, 840.

With 5 shares, there are 7*6*5*4*3 possible ways' of sharing them, 2560

With 6 shares, there are 7 ways to share them..

From my workings, there is 1 way to to have 1 share, 3 ways to have 2 shares, 3 ways to have 3 shares, 2 ways of having 5 shares and 1 way of having 6 shares.

1*7 + 42*3 + 3*210 + 2*840 + 1*2560 + 7*1 = 5010

Hi, for some coursework I needed to put a 9 x 9 matrix into an equation which I did by using the 2 x 2 in boxes and exapnding the squares with other matrices from the drop down menu (2 x 2 to 3 x 3 then insert 3 x 3 matrix into each cell)

Problem now is that the elements are not align and makes it difficult to read.

1 AnswerSoftware1 decade ago### What is the "free list" method and the bitmap method for disk space allocation?

I understand that the free list method lists all sectors that are free and the bitmap method lists all sectors regardless, but this question confuses me:

Compare the bit-map and hole-list methods for

keeping track of free space on a disk with 800

cylinders, each one having 5 tracks of 32

sectors.

How many holes would it take before the holelist

would be larger than the bit-map? Assume the

allocation unit is the sector, a hole requires a 32-

bit word in the free-list and the bit-map uses a

32-bit word per allocation unit (or sector).

Surely if they are both 32 bit then you wouldn't be able to get a free list that was larger than the bit map?

1 AnswerOther - Hardware1 decade ago### In a fetch-decode-execute cycle which steps can be carried out at the same time?

Hi, my lecturer did tell me about this, but that was months ago and his notes don't state which steps they are. The steps are (in the past paper)

1. Fetch the next instruction from memory into the instruction register.

2. Change the program counter to point to the following instruction.

3. Determine the type of instruction just fetched.

4. If the instruction uses a word in memory, determine where it is.

5. Fetch the word from memory (if required) into a CPU register.

6. Execute the instruction.

7. Go to step 1 to begin executing the following instruction.

Personally, i think it is 3 and 4 because when determining the type of instruction you should able to be able to determine the location of the word required in memory.
