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. What is the number of ways that the five students can be seated in the car for the drive? Answers not 20 or 22

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
