Sometimes it's not so easy
to figure out the number of possible outcomes, like when you
have several items with a number of choices. The Counting Principle can help. With the Counting Principle, all you need to do is multiply
the number of choices for each item. For instance:You have 2 different types of rings, 4 types of hats, and 3 jackets? How many combinations can you make? Multiply the number of watches by the number of hats 3x4=12 Then multiply that by the number of jackets 12x2=24 There are 24 possible combinations.That's all it is. And that took a lot less time than trying on 24 different outfits, didn't it?
