The twins in each room can be ordered in 2! ways. And the pairs or twins can be ordered in the 3 rooms in 3! ways,

$$(2!)^3 \cdot 3! = 48$$ arrangements.

Your Answer

Surround your text in *italics* or **bold**, to write a math equation use, for example, $x^2+2x+1=0$ or $$\beta^2-1=0$$

Use LaTeX to type formulas and markdown to format text. See example.
