the word OPTICAL has three vowels and 4 consonants. Since all the three vowels are to be together, mark as one symbol X This with the 4 consonants become 5 which can be permuted in 5! = 120 ways. The three vowels in X can be permuted among themselves in 3! = 6 ways.

The total number of arrangements of the letters of the word OPTICAL so that all the vowels are always together is 120 x 6 = 720.
