There are 270 girls and 210 boys enrolled in the high school. The cover of the year book will show a photograph of a pair of students. How many pairs are possible?

Not quite. There are 480 total students. So the question is, how many unique pairs can be selected from those 480 students. That's a combination, 480C2 (since the same 2 students are the same pair, whatever order they are selected). Do you know the formula for that?

Jamanorthi's answer is wrong. That high school has 270+210=480 students. You can chose 480 different students from all students. After that you can chose 479 students, because you have already selected one of them. That means 480*479 ordered pairs are possible. But order is not important so you should divide that number by 2! . The answer is 480*479/2= 114960. (If the pair in cover book consists of one male and one female student the answer is 270*210=56700.)
