If Bob and Jen are two of 5 participants in a race, how many different ways can the race finish where Jen always finishes in front of Bob?
It should be 4! = 24. Basically since Jen and Bob's positions are fixed - we can just treat them as ONE combination. Taking the remaining three folks + ONE combination of Jen and Bob you have 4 permutations for the race to finish.

Total # of ways the race can be finished is 5!. In half of the cases Meg finishes ahead of Bob and in other half Bob finishes ahead of Meg. So, ways Meg to finish ahead of Bob is 5!/2=60.
