We can select 5 of them in $11C_5$ ways to sit along with 4.
Rest will automatically go to the other side .This can be done only way
Now 9 on either side can be arranged in 9! ways
So the total number of arrangements are =$11C_5\times 9!\times 9!$
$\Rightarrow \large\frac{11!}{5!6!}$$\times 9!\times 9!$
Hence the given statement is true.
