1. Hi guys so this question is getting on my nerves - I can't see how they get the median probability for 20? I have done all of the possible combinations and I still get 56/125? I have got (20,20,20), 3(20,20,50), 3(10,20,20), 3(10,20,50) and there's still more apparently, maybe it's an obvious one but I can't seem to get it?

cheers

The list seems complete as regards the values of the coins, although it should be 6(10,20,50)

How comes?

How comes?
Number of arrangements of 3 distinct objects = 3! = 6

a,b,c
a,c,b
b,c,a
b,a,c
c,a,b
c,b,a.
