Here's the Solution to this Question
Since the buses are all next to each other, we can cover them by a box and consider this box as a kind of toy car. Then, as we consider, Freddie has 7 toy cars, and therefore, there exists 7!=5040 different ways to arrange them in a line. After doing that, it remains for Freddie to arrange the 3 toy buses under the box. This gives him 3!=6 ways per each arrangement of the toy cars.
The total number of possible arrangements is .
