    If you are studying this topic, this question is almost too elementary.

    number of breads: 5
    meats : 6 (what is pulled poke)
    veggies : 6
    cheese: 6
    Source ? : 6

    number of possible sandwiches
    = 5x6x6x6x6 = 6480

    Now the question becomes more interesting if you assume that he may or may not choose any or part of the listing
