Since the wording of this question says "how many ways can he list his courses" the order in which they are picked does matter right?
anonymous
  • anonymous
So I use the permutation 6*5*4*3=360 For his major disciplines
anonymous
  • anonymous
three of the four courses=4*3*2=24 Therefore the order in which he can list the course equals to 360*24=8640

here is my best guess |dw:1437286293253:dw| multiply the choices for major and minor together for the answer

6*5*4*3=360 4*3*2=24 360*24=8640

the only thing not mentioned is whether he must choice the major course before the minor course if is order isn't important in the way major ore minor are selected.

Yes the wording is a little unsure
anonymous
  • anonymous
However I can assume as such right?
anonymous
  • anonymous
the use of "list" borders nominal or ordinal
