Hi everyone, happy Tuesday.

If you could please help me with this question I'd appreciate it.

A zydeco band from louisiana will play 5 traditional and 3 original cajun compositions at a concert. in how many ways can they arrange the program if...

1) they begin with a traditional piece?

2) an original piece will be played last?

thanks!

so I'm not really sure where to begin... if they begin with a traditional piece is it just 5 x 4 x 3 x 2 x 1 ways times 3 x 2 x 1 ways? And same thing with number 2, except reversed?

If you could show how you got the answer, that'd be much appreciated too. Thank you!!
