pt) Anne, Bill, and Cathy are eating dinner together
at a restaurant. When it is time for dessert,
the server tells them that the restaurant has apple, cherry, pecan, blueberry, and pumpkin pies; carrot, German chocolate, coconut, and apple spice cakes; and vanilla, chocolate, strawberry, and spumoni ice cream.
The restaurant has an ample supply of each of these,
so each person can select a dessert without
concern for what the others may order.
In how many outcomes can 1 person have pie, 1 person have ice cream, and 1 perosn have cake?
