I will assume that the order of the people in a car does not matter. (That is, we don't consider where each person sits, or who is the driver.) Since all three cars must be used, there are 5 cases to consider. [color=beige]. . . [/color] [color=beige]. . . [/color] [color=beige]. . . [/color] [color=beige]. . . [/color] [color=beige]. . . [/color] [color=beige]. . . [/color]
