how many diff ways can 2 girls and 3 boys sit in a row if the 2 girls always sit side by side.
I'm trying to apply chads method but i can't tell how. clearly order matters and when order matters he just puts the number of selections on top and thats it because order matters... so it should be 5! but its not..

another one is how many ways can the same 4 physics books, 3 algebra books, and 2 chem books be arranged on a self.. again order matters so it should be 9! ??

i feel like his way isn't applying.
even if i use the equation of n!/(n-r)! there isn't a clear r to plug in!???

pelase help

Its been a while since I did these, but I think this is number 1. And the second one is done the same way. FYI, order matters here and there is no replacement (obviously), so you don't divide by anything.

Oh sorry, I thought it was 3 girls and 2 boys lol. It's late… and since the girls must always sit side by side…ya, didn't see that part either lol. Look at the second attachment.
