having a VERY difficult time trying to solve combination/permutation problems? it's not clicking!?!??!
At the Peking Gardens restaurant, the menu features 5 items in column A, 6 in column B, 4 in column D, 8 in column E, and 5 in column F. For a NOBEL plate, you can order one item from each of columns A, B, C. How many different NOBEL plates are there? For an IMPERIAL plate, you can order two items from each of columns A, B and C or two each from columns D, E, and F. How many IMPERIAL plates can be ordered? How would I solve this?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0this is fundamental theorem of counting but you are missing the number in column C A = 5 B = 6 C = ? D = 4 E = 5 F = 8 Nobel plate = 5 x 6 x ? just multiply the number of choices in each stage...

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0again its multiplying 2 from A \[^5C_{2}\] 2 from B \[^6C_{2}\] continue this the the solution is \[^5C_{2} \times ~^6C_{2} \times .... \]
