In how many ways can a family of six people be seated at a round table if the youngest kid must sit between the parents?

 

Thank youuu

rotation are usually considered the same in question like this.

 

Seat the child anywhere to start the sequence     1 

Dad can be seated on either side.                         1*2

Mum sits on the other side                                     1*2*1

 

3 more people to sit.  They are A,B and C

A can side in 3 places, 2 seats left from B and only one place left for C

 

So I have

1*2*1*3*2*1 = 12 ways
