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

gggbb four ways for the two boys......but the two boys could switch places making 8 ways for the boys to be in line

then the other three spots can be filled by the girls 3 x 2 x 1 6 ways

8 x 6 = 48 ways (this assumes the boys and girls are distiguishable)
