here, word is E Q U A T I O N
vowels —> E , U, A , I , O ( there are five vowels in given words )
consonants—> T, Q , N ( there are 3 consonants in given words )

the vowels can be arranged in ways
the consonants can be arranged in ways
These vowels and consonants ( when we take as a single letter )can be arranged ways .

hence, a/c to fundamental principle of counting
total number of ways
