So you have 7 seats, and 6 students. So you can try to assign seats to students. The first student will have 7 options, the second will have 6, and so on. Does that help?

the formula to find the answer?

So in a question like this, you multiply the first number of possibilities by the remaining number by the remaining, until you are out. In this case, you have 6 students, so 6 slots: _ * _ * _ * _ * _ * _ The number of possibilities decreases by one each time, so fill in the blanks: 7 * 6 * _ * _ * _ * _
