    to find the possible combinations you just multiply the two categories together :)

    So the answer is false since 4 times 3 is 12 not 7

    The shirts are called a, b, c, d. The pants are called 1, 2, 3. How many combinations of one of each can you make? |dw:1437760428910:dw|

    @Chumpian already answered the question correctly above. For each of the 4 shirts, she can choose one of the 3 pants, so the answer is 3 * 4 = 12

    yeah @Chumpian is right total combinations would be 12,we can find it from the formula of combinations
