 Question 253884: Could you please help me with the following question? A doctor visits 5 people by bus once a day. He can use either of two buses, but once he starts out he visits all 5 people in the same order before returning home. How many possibilities are there? Thank youAnswer by richwmiller(9143)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!this problem appears twice. First of all I would like to meet this doctor who takes the bus! Second I would like to meet a doctor who visits homes! This person is not in the USA for sure! It sounds like their are basically only two choices . Which bus? If I am reading it right, he follows the same route visiting patients no matter which bus he takes.
