A car has one driver's seat and four different passenger seats. A group of five students wants to use the car to go to school, but only two of those five students are legally allowed to drive the car.

We can choose  one of the two students to drive......there are  2 ways to do this


The other four students  can be arranged  in  4!  = 24 ways


So...the total number of arrangements are   2 * 24   =  48 ways
