1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data How many unique ways are there to arrange 5 people around a circular table? 2. Relevant equations N/A 3. The attempt at a solution This should be a pretty simple question, but I can't seem to focus on much of anything now, so I'm really not confident in my solution. I figured that if it were a straight line or something like that, then there would be 5! unique ways of arranging the people. However, since this is a round table, I guessed that ways of arranging individuals which were merely a rotation from another orientation shouldn't be counted more than once. Since there were five corners per se, I figured that only 1/5 of the original 5! ways of arranging people were actually unique; and thus, there would be 4! unique ways of arranging 5 people around a circular table. I know that this reasoning isn't rigorous by any stretch of the imagination, but I was wondering if it is even correct (or if the answer is close to correct). Thanks for any feedback.
