1/12 This is a permutation question. 5/5 people can sit in the first seat and then from there are 4 seats. On both sides of the first seat, there will be 2 ways of ordering people around the first person so you multiply by 2/4. There after it will be multiplied by 1/3, 1/2, 1/1. Simply put: (5*2) / (5!) or (5*2*1*1*1) / (5*4*3*2*1) = 10/120 = 1/12 [This explanation is not the best. There are better explanations to this same question on this site with the same answer.]

1/12 4! for all the possible kinds of seats around a table and 2 for the ordering seat. 2/4! = 1/12
