How many ways can we rearrange the letters of the word FACIAL so that no rearrangements start with an A? The two A's are indistinguishable.

The  total number  that  don't  start with an A  =

 

Select  any  non-A  =  4  ways

And with each of these  the other identifiable  arrangements  =   5!/2! =  60

 

So     4  * 60   =    240    arrangements that  do not start with an  "A"
