### Question 45003

Probability

1) A parent wanted to know how many unique arrangements could their mathematically talented baby discover with the set of 9 baby blocks shown below. There are three blocks with sides blue, red, green, and orange, two blocks with sides red and green, and four blocks with all sides black. Blocks are placed in an arrangement (left to right), but also by orientation(90 degree rotations)
a) If block orientation by distinct color matters in addition to order, how many unique patterns can be discovered by the baby?
c) Consider a different restriction with (a) and ignore the restriction given by (b). The new restriction is that no black block may appear on an end and that no more than two black blocks may abut one another. How many unique patterns can be discovered by the baby?
b) Consider the restriction that if two sides abut, red sides must abut red sides, green sides must abut green sides, but black sides can abut any colored side. How many unique patterns can be discovered by the baby?
