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

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.

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

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

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.

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!

lol ok girl thanks

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