In how many ways can five children stand in a queue?

Asked by Aaryan | 1 year ago |  44

##### Solution :-

Number of arrangements of ‘n’ things taken all at a time = P (n, n)

The total number of ways in which five children can stand in a queue = the number of arrangements of 5 things taken all at a time = P (5, 5)

So,

P (5, 5) = $$\dfrac{5!}{(5 – 5)!}$$

= 5! [Since, 0! = 1]

= 5 × 4 × 3 × 2 × 1

= 120

Hence, Number of ways in which five children can stand in a queue are 120.
