Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3total choices for breakfast = 3+5 = 8 total choices for hot drinks = 6+2 = 8 since for each breakfast item that you pick, there are again 8 more choices for hot drink, the total number of ways that you can have breakfast AND hot drink is 8*8 = 64
