Sam has the same chores each week, but he wants to add variety. Suppose Sam has to empty trash, water the plants, fill the bird feeder, and sort the recycling. How many different ways can Sam complete his chores.

**mathmom**, Saturday, June 2, 2012 at 9:05pmIf there are 4 different varables, then there are 4 different combinations for each choice. for example, if u chose "empty trash" first, then there are 4 combinations of how the rest of the chores can be done after "empty trash." If you chose "water the plants" first, again there are 4 combinations of how the rest can be done after this. So essentially, the easiest calculation to figure this out is 4^4 (four to the fourth power) but i dont know if your son has learned this yet.
