Joey has 4 pairs of pants,6 shirts, and 2 pairs of shoes, but only 1 favorite pair of pants, 1 favorite shirt, and 1 pair of shoes. If he randomly selects an outfit to wear, what it the probability that it will be his favorite pants, shirt, and shoes?

  • Math -

    number of ways to select an outfit
    = 4x6x2
    = 48 ways, only one of those is his favourite

    prob of favourite = 1/48

  • Math -

    That's what I thought but the answer in the book says 1/3.

  • Math -

    Have yet to find a mathbook that did not contain at least one error
