if it was six people with no conditions, it would be \(5!\) does that help?

ok you can treat the mother and father as one unit, since they have to sit next to each other therefore we can think that we have 5 people instead of 6, so it is \(4!\) except... the mother and father can switch places so really it is \(2\times 4!\)
