  1. Use the “fundimental counting principle” 1st to calculate the total possible combinations of clothing for Susan.
  2.  Use a tree diagram to show the same combinations for Sue’s outfit choices.  Be sure to refer to notebook examples before you begin and think about how far you need to spread those 1st choices out so you DO NOT run out of space for all of the other branches.
  3. Use a list to show the same combinations for Sue’s outfit choices.


Spread the 1st choices out far enough BUT NOT TOO FAR!
