Having problems with question 9 and what I came up was(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Case 1:

1st person gets 1 And

2nd person gets 3

OR

Case 2:

1st person gets 3 And

2nd person gets 1

OR

Case 3

They both get 2

And seeing that they are both dependent events so that once a person receives an article it affects the amount the next person gets. I used permutations for each of the two scenarios for each case, multiplied them and added them all together but I don't get the correct answer which is 14. What am I doing wrong???
