The supreme court has 9 members. A "6 to 3" decision means that 6 judges voted with the lower court, and 3 voted against.

To reverse the order, a majority of judges must vote to reverse it. So either 5, 6, 7, 8, or 9 judges must vote to reverse the decision. The question is, how many ways can this happen?

Consider a random arrangement of 20 boys and 16 girls in a line. Let X be the number of boys with girls on both sides. Let Y be the number of girls with boys on both sides. Find $E(X+Y)$

$E(\cdot )$ denotes expectation. For a discrete random variable Z that takes the values ${z}_{1},{z}_{2},\dots ,{z}_{n}$ with the corresponding probabilities ${p}_{1},{p}_{2},\dots ,{p}_{n}$ the expectation of Z is defined as $E(Z)=\sum _{i=1}^{n}{z}_{i}{p}_{i}$
