How many ways can you arrange 2 boys and 3 girls in a line, if the 2 boys must stand next to each other?

If the 2 boys must stand next to each other, you can treat them as one thing. That means there are 4 things to arrange, which is just 4! = **24**

The two boys can stand next to each other in 8 ways in the line of 5

then fill the other three slots with the girls 3 x 2 x 1

8 x 3 x 2 x 1 = 48 ways
