Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

number of peoples=5

number of positions=3

so the differnt ways 3 peoples can choose=5C3

and the different ways they can change between the positions=3

so the total ways to choose=5C3*3

=5!*3/(5-3)!3!

=5*4*3!*3/2!3!

=60/2

=30

so the answer is 30

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
