6 friends go to a party, each one carrying a different umbrella. They place the umbrellas outside. When the party is over, they are drunk and each one grabs an umbrella at random.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

In how many ways could none of them have taken the right umbrella?

I'm having a bit trouble with this, as I can't seem to solve it without having to do some rough counting some times. Can any of you bother to solve this and explain it to me?
