    actually forget 32 it may actually only be 24 because

    well if you number each one of them and keep the same number for each one then I would say

    1 2 3 4
    1 2 4 3
    1 3 2 4
    1 3 4 2
    1 4 2 3
    1 4 3 2

    2 1 3 4
    2 1 4 3
    2 3 1 4
    2 3 4 1
    2 4 1 3
    2 4 3 1

    3 1 2 4
    3 1 4 2
    3 2 1 4
    3 2 4 1
    3 4 1 2
    3 4 2 1

    4 1 2 3
    4 1 3 2
    4 2 1 3
    4 2 3 1
    4 3 1 2
    4 3 2 1

    I think that is all of the ones you can have, tho I may be wrong

    FYI, just glanced at the brainteaser. Wolf is correct about it being 24, although I've not looked at the combinations wolf posted (although i assume they are exhaustive).
