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?
number of ways to select an outfit
= 48 ways, only one of those is his favourite
prob of favourite = 1/48
That's what I thought but the answer in the book says 1/3.
