     A derangement of n numbers is a permutation of those numbers in which none of the numbers appears in its original place. For example, the numbers {1,2,3} can be deranged into {2,3,1} and {3,1,2}. We can modify this slightly for n numbers that are not necessarily distinct by saying that no number in the derangement can be in the place that a number of the same value was in in the original ordering. So the numbers {1,1,2,2,3} could be deranged into {2,2,1,3,1}, {2,2,3,1,1}, {2,3,1,1,2}, and {3,2,1,1,2}. Write a program that takes a series of numbers and outputs the number of derangements of nums.

sample input: {0,0,0,0,0,0,0,1,1,1,1,1,1,1,2} sample output: 14

sample input: {0,5,4,2,3,6,6} sample output: 640

now how to solve it??? can anyone give a detailed solution..

Provide a link to original problem. What restrictions we have on input data?

    It is topcoder srm 176 div 1 500 points problem. Array contain between 1 and 15 elements inclusive. So it can be simple dp with mask.
    my solution.

yipeeee!!!!! finally solved it myself without any help by inclusion-exclusion principle. But still it can also be solved by memoized recursion. If anyone knows this method pls tell....

@Alias: It more looks like a theoretical problem than a programming one so I guess there are not any links in online judges or programming websites.

P.S. Lucky post number (4774) :D

      You're right. Fair enough. I just guessed. But it stills looks more theoretical.
