Two boys and three girls are going to sit around a table with 5 different chairs. If the two boys want to sit together, in how many possible ways can they be seated?

"Anchor"  the  boys in any 2 chairs......there  are  2 ways they can sit

 

And foreach of these,  the  girls can be seated in 31 = 6 ways

 

So

 

2 * 6 =    12  possible arrangements

 

cool cool cool
