4+3 = 7 children

# of ordered lines = 7x6x5x4 = 840

Total 7 children. We use permutations for this one as order counts as a seperate group. Total = 7P4 = 840

1) We need to select 4 children out of 7 which equals 4C7
2) Order does matter so on first place any of 4, 2nd place any of 3 and so on...Answer 4!4C7=840
