**Problem-**

Glitz has red, orange, and green shirts; gray and brown belts; and yellow and white shorts. How many different outfits are possible?

**Answer-**

This question is just like question number 1. You just have to multiply the shirts by the belts and the shorts.

**Shorts-**

Red, Orange, and Green

**Belts-**

Gray and Brown

**Shorts-**

Yellow and White

**Solving the Problem-**

Red, Gray, Yellow

Red, Gray, White

Red, Brown,Yellow

Red, Brown, White

Orange, Gray, Yellow

Orange, Gray, White

Orange, Brown, Yellow

Orange, Brown, White

Green, Gray, Yellow

Green, Gray, White

Green, Brown, Yellow

Green, Brown, White

**Short Cut to the Answer-**

As you can see, all the shirts have been used with all the belts and shorts.

So since there is 3 different kinds of shirts, 2 different kinds of belts and 2 different kinds of shorts. You could just multiply them together and get the same answer...

**3**Shirts

**x**

**2**Belts

**x**

**2**Shorts

**=**

**12**

**ANSWER!**
