    Hint: Whatever the answer, would it be the same if the 5 students were all on one row with the question being "In how many ways can 5 students be arranged in a row ( line )for a group photo?

    The two questions have the same answer: 120 ways. Three students on the first row and two in the back can be done in the same number of ways as 5 students arranged on one row.

    The picture is right. Then, use the multiplication rule. 5*4*3*21 = 120 ways
