    Answer:

    The people can seat themselves in 20160 different ways.

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Arrangements of n elements:

    The number of arrangements of n elements is given by the following formula:

    A_{n} = n!

    In this question:

    For the first seat, that is, the driver seat, 4 possible people can sit.

    For the remaining 7 seats, the number of ways in which the people can sit is an arrangement of 7 elements. So

    T = 4*7! = 4*5040 = 20160

    The people can seat themselves in 20160 different ways.
