If we divide the task into stages we have that
- there are 5 ways to choose the President (5C1)
- there are 4 ways to choose the Vice (4C1)
- there are 3 ways to choose the two Treasurers (3C2)
Multiplying those numbers we get the total number of ways to form this committee 5*4*3=60

Since we have to choose four persons from a group of five people, the first position for president can be covered in 5C1=5 ways, from the remaining four people we can choose vice president in 4C1=4 ways and the rest people will be elected in 3C2=3 ways.
So the committee can be formed in 5*4*3=60 ways.

We will choose people for each position in turn.

President:5 -> Vice President:4 -> Treasurers:3C2

-> Total = 5*4*3=60.
