A golf club manufacturer makes drivers with 4 different shaft lengths, 3 different lofts, 2 different grips, and 2 different club head materials. How many different combinations are possible?
No. of drivers or no. of combinations possible= product of no. of ways of choosing one from each = (choosing one shaft length from four)*(choosing one loft from three)*(choosing one grip from two)*(Choosing one type of club material from two) Do you get the idea?
so is it 0
Nope, Tell me no. of ways of choosing 1 item from 3?
I really don t get it
Do you know what's \(^aC_b\)?
Nope/I am Really bad at math
@1dvanessah I gotta bounce now, @Zarkon @saifoo.khan please help here
yeah not n choose k in this case. counting principle says multiply all choices together
i.e. \(4\times 3\times 2\times 2\)
It can't be 48,i multply them(or can it_
yep just multiply all the number choices together to get total possible combinations
looks like 48 to me
