If Sue can choose an outfit from 2 shirts (red or blue) and 3 pairs of pants (blue, black, or white) how many different outfits can she wear?

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

You can solve this two different ways:

1. Write out all the possibilities of (shirt color, pants color)

(red,blue), (red,black), (red,white), (blue,blue), (blue,black), (blue,white)

As you can see, there's 6 possibilities.

2. Or you can multiply the number of possibilities of shirts by the number of possibilities of pants. That would be 2*3=6 possibilities.
