or
4! * 1 * 5! = 24 * 120 = 2880
Am i missing something? How did you get 1800?

We're choosing 2 consonants out of a group of 6, so it is irrelevant if we get (B,C) or (C,B). The same applies for the vowels.
After picking the five letters up, and since the new words aren't required to have a meaning, we can mix them up through 5!.
