Answer:

There are #720# ways. See explanation.

Explanation:

To calculate the number of ways in which #n# elements can be arranged in a sequence you should use the permutations:

#n=P_6=6!#

To calculate the factorial you have to multiply all natural numbers between #1# and #6#:

#6! =1xx2xx3xx4xx5xx6=36xx20=720#
