--------------------------------------------------------Bush places letter numbers 1, 2, ... , 9 into the typing tray one at a time during the day in

that order. Each letter is placed on top of the pile. Every now and then Mulford takes the

top letter from the pile and types it. He leaves

for lunch remarking that letter 8 has already been typed. How many possible orders

there are for the typing of the remaining letters. [For example, letters 1, 7 and 8 might

already have been typed, and the remaining letters might be

typed in the order 6, 5, 9, 4, 3, 2. So the sequence 6, 5, 9, 4, 3, 2 is one possibility. The

empty sequence is another.]
