## stevosamarium123 2 years ago Felipe can choose 1 snack from a box containing 3 different granola bars, 4 different kinds of fruit, and 2 different kinds of chips. How many ways can Felipe choose a snack?

Isn't it 3 * 4 * 2 ?

3. EulersEquation

$\frac{ possible_choices! }{ 3_different_granola_bars! * 4_different_kinds_of_fruit! * 2_different_kinds_of_chips! }$

4. EulersEquation

$\frac{ 9! }{ 3!4!2! }$

15. stevosamarium123

16. EulersEquation

NO, I guess it is 3 * 4 * 2. Did someone say that already?

17. EulersEquation

I was doing a stupid permutation.

18. Jas9420

@EulersEquation Haha, yeah. ^_^

19. stevosamarium123

I was wondering wat that was. lol ">"

20. stevosamarium123

@EulersEquation ? is it 24?

21. stevosamarium123

is it 24? @Luis_Rivera

22. stevosamarium123

thx

23. EulersEquation

ACTUALLY the answer is 9. The problem says that he can choose one snack from 9 choices! You see? The question is worded poorly. Does it mean one snack containing one of each of the three types of snacks? Or does it mean only one thing among the nine items?

24. Luis_Rivera

dude, i know what it meant
