@itsmylife ok i suck at this stuff! Please help lol :)
Suppose you are getting dressed in the morning and are looking for an outfit. How many different outfits can you create if you have 5 different shirts, 6 different pants, 3 different pairs of shoes, and 2 different hats?

It is actually a simple calculation. You multiply your possibilities by each other. Here you'd multiply 4x6 to get your number of outcomes.

- anonymous

read mine!!!

- anonymous

oh ok so just 5*6*3*2 which equals 180! :D

- anonymous

no

- anonymous

Lol I was kidding, no its not that simple

- anonymous

@itsmylife um okay so it's not 180 lol.

- anonymous

nope

- anonymous

Consider first the simpler scenario of just shirts and pants. You can take any one shirt (any of the 5) and wear that one shirt with any of 6 pants. So, just considering shirts and pants, there are 30 combos: 6 pants for any of the 5 shirts. 6 x 5.
So, just extend that reasoning to all articles of clothing. You just multiply the number you have of each.

- anonymous

um yeah not sure what i'm doing really right there

- anonymous

Actually it might just be 180 if you think about it

- anonymous

Yeah that'sw what I thought it was!

- anonymous

It IS 180. It is that simple. It's just 6 x 5 3 x 2

- anonymous

well if your concerned about fashion you cant make unlimited combination but if your not then its uncertain

- anonymous

Thats what I thought...

- anonymous

i think that it is just 24

- anonymous

typo 6 x 5 x 3 x 2

- anonymous

that's what I though

- anonymous

it is 180

- anonymous

ok jesh you all was confsuing!

- anonymous

All you are doing is multiplying the outfit options. And wala~

- anonymous

are ya guys talking bout ma thought

- anonymous

oh sorry

- anonymous

sorry britt

- anonymous

lol no it's cool

- anonymous

If you were just looking at shirts and pants, you already are up to 30. You just keep multiplying. Again, start with my example of of just shirts and pants to get the concept down. A lot of math is starting with the simple scenarios and working up to the actual problem at hand.

- anonymous

if it was just shirt pants i wud've done this but we've got shoes and hats too lol thats load of stuff , is that guy supposed to be a joker lol sorry for off the topic talk but its logical

- anonymous

do you get it @BrittanyFrench

- anonymous

@ashlynn143 yeah lol

- anonymous

ok just call me and i will help!!

- anonymous

So, for each of the 30 pants/shirts combos, you have 3 different shoes. Now you are up to (6 x 5) x 3 = 90. Throw in the hats: (6 x 5 x 3) x 2 = 180 and then you're done!

- anonymous

lol ok girl thanks

- anonymous

yup

- anonymous

So, if you get the shirt/pants concept down, then going for all 4 types of clothing becomes easier to conceptualize.
