CARLO PLANS TO FEED THE DOG BEEF ONE DAY, CHICKEN ANOTHER DAY AND GRAINS ON ANOTHER DAY. HOW MANY DIFFEERENT 3 DAY COMBINATIONS CAN HE MAKE? LIST THE COMBINATIONS.

Please do not use all capital letters.
What are YOUR answers to these questions? 
my son say this answer 1) is 8 x 3 = 24
and i think is 8 x 2 = 16
2) beef, chicken, and grains then chicken, beef, and grains then third day grains, chicken, and beef 
The dog only eats 2 cans a day (not 8).
2 * 3 = 6 cans
The dog is eating all of one kind of food each day.
The dog could eat 6 different combinations:
beef, chicken, grain
chicken, beef, grain
beef, grain, chicken
chicken, grain, beef
grain, chicken, beef
grain, beef, chicken
