    You should start drawing. It's a bit tricky to draw your tree diagramme in this environment.

    Oh, alright. I guess. Though, it will be much of a puzzle for me to create a tree diagram. I would give my draft of the answer to you or anyone who can answer this. May I request some assistance or some sort of correction after I do?

    On another note, I find that whatever the answer is...it will be such a drag for me to draw. Oh well. :/

    Sorry, not much choice on this one. It actually says to make a tree diagram and list ALL the possibilities. Yikes.

    Hmmm.. come to think of it, it sounds like I'm going to make this on my own. *sob*

    The answer is 6*4*4, or 96, different arrangements. It's really mean to list all of them, though.

    Ah, alright! I think I can do this. Thank you for your help Mr. Sleung! :) I forgot there is an easier way for this. I shall begin making the tree diagram pronto! Also, I'll be posting another question... but a moment of your time if I may ever be so bold, how can you post another question? Does my previous question have to be answered correctly before proceeding with the next?

    The "answer" is NOT 96. If that is the correct number, then the answer is: 96 Tree Diagram List of ALL possibilities. Compliance is part of the order of the day.
