Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

Three ways 1 driver side , 1 passenger side  and two in the trunk . This is a very vague question especially because the size of the clowns are unknown . 

   

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.

Do you know if I would use the Fundamental Counting Principle for this question ?

You can if you want to know how many ways/ positions the 5 clowns can adjust inside of the car and that would be (3 entry's per car)x  4  ( clowns ) = 12 ways the clowns can adjust. 

But if the clowns differed in shapes , sizes and outfit then  the only thing you can say with certainty that all clowns would be able to be ️️place through three entries in a smart car. Confusing question
