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.


Please let me know if you have any questions and please give me a review rating as well. Thank you and have a nice day! :)
