Answer:

For N-person line, the answer is #2 X (N-1)!#.

Explanation:

Ii the line is for N persons and two girls have to stand together, count

the two girls as 1 person.

Then, the number of permutations is

# (N-1)! #.

For every such arrangement, these two girls can stand in

two ways, one after the other..

So, overall, the number of permutations is

#2 X (N-1)!#
