Fri May 18, 2012
The 9 boys may occupy 9 places in 9P9 = 9! = 362880 ways. Since no two girls are to sit together, we may arrange the 3 girls at the 10 places shown by x marks as below:
XBXBXBXBXBXBXBXBXBX

Now, the 3 girls at 10 places may be seated in:
10P3 = 10 x 9 x 8 x 7 x 6 x 5 x 4 = 604800 ways

Therefore, the required number of ways = (362880 x 604800) = 219469824000 ways.
