# There are twenty students in your class and eight teachers teach you. A photograph of your class is to betaken with your teachers and principal in such a way that all teachers and principal sit in the first row andall students stand in second row. If the middle seat of the first row is reserved for the principal and the twocorners of the second row and reserved for two tallest students interchangeable only between them, thenhow many seating arrangements are possible?

there are nine seats in the first row with one fixed for the principal so the number of ways are 8!
in the second row there are 20 places for the students with the 2 ends fixed which can be interchanged so the possible ways are 18!*2!
so the total numbers of seating arrangements possible are 8!*18!*2!=516287415629905920000
