    So, there are 6 ways to choose her shoes, 4 to choose the jeans and 8 for sweaters. We may multiply the numbers to get the number of ways.

    \(\Large \color{Black}{\Rightarrow 6 \times 4 \times 8 = 6 \times 32 = 192 }\) 192 different ways.

    BTW - I pretty sure that's it's either 18C3 or 18P3 18C3 gives an answer of: 816 and 18P3 gives an answer of: 4896 Is this correct?

    Okay, I'm a bit confused - wouldn't multiplying not count the number of possible combination that you could have for every single combination?
