In how many ways can the 12 face cards from a standard deck can be arranged such that all the Queens are before all the Kings?  I have no idea how to do this problem.

Number of total cards in the deck = 52. Number of face cards in the deck = 12. Now, we need to find the number of ways such that the first card is always a face card. Now, first card is face card so number of cards left to be arranged = 52 - 1 = 51. We take the factorial of that so we can find out how many diffrent ways we can re-arange them, but them we have to multiply it by 12, beacus of the 12 face cards we can hoose from.


Im not 100 percent sure, but i think the answere should be 51!*12, pls tell whether it right or not.
