    Hi. Does anyone know how many ways (possibilities) of building the duck (6 pcs)? I recently approached by some clients here. I’m trying to get a close to approximate possibilities:)


    Hi Phek, could this article help?

    Hi Phek,

    Mathematically it should be in the 10s or hundreds of thousands of combinations or permutations or possibly even more..
    In reality in my experience if I ask 50 people to build ducks.. about 3 to 4 would be similar though not exactly so.

    However all 50 are building a duck according to how their hands and minds sees a duck.

    If you transpose this the possibility for different ducks in a group if people would be about 92 %…

    In a demo workshop of 6 to 8 people noone has ever built similar ducks.

    Hope this helps.
