You can simplify the problem by considering it as two different problems. The first involves consider the five-book chunk as a single book, and calculating the permutations there. The second involves the permutations of the books within the five-book block. Multiplying these together gives you the total permutations. Permutations of five objects is 5!, five gives 5!, so the total permutations are: 5!5! = 5*5*4*4*3*3*2*2 = 263252 = 14,400 permutations

They can be arranged 5! or 120 ways.

The probability that the birthdays of five persons chosen at random will fall in twelve different calender months is zero. You would need at least twelve persons to have a non zero probability.

There are 5!/2! = 60 arrangements.

There are 2300 possible combinations.
