To decide what to eat at a restaurant, Frank closes his eyes, places his finger on the menu, and orders whichever dish he places his finger on. He chooses one salad, one main course, and a dessert. If there were 10 possible dishes for each selection, how many possible combinations could he have chosen other than the one he selected? 99 100 999 1,000

    Chances are based on this we subtract one since he already had it

    I just would like to note with @peachpi since he is seeing this; we need to change the way they word questions because most would pick 1,000 and the truth it's 999.
