Mary's Textbook Priority
Mary has enrolled in \(6\) courses: Chemistry, Physics, Math, English, French and Biology. She has one textbook for each course and wants to place them on a shelf. How many ways can she arrange the textbooks so that the English textbook is placed before the French textbook?
Details and assumptions
If the books are ordered from left to right, then the "English textbook is placed before the French textbook" means that the English textbook was placed to the left of the French textbook. They do not need to be immediately beside each other.
