The number of arrangements of CLASSIC is 7!/(2!2!) (permutations of 7 letters out of which 2 C's and 2 S's are identical).

The number of arrangements when C's are together. Consider two C's as one unit: {CC}{L}{A}{S}{S}{I}. The number of arrangements of these 6 units out of which two units (two S's are identical) is 6!/2!.

Hope it's clear.
