1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
I worked out A) just fine it seems (given the answer in the book), but B) i'm not sure how to take this out. Below was a try but i'm not sure i was even on the right track. Any ideas? 2. Relevant equations 3. The attempt at a solution

"All nationalities but Italian are represented" So those three do not comply. It must have a zero for the third space, and contain at least one from each of the others, and must equal 4.
