Select 3 cards from the pile of 12 cards. for each question. How many ways are there of selecting one of each facecard from the pile, is it combination or permutation and why. -------------------- There are 4 Kings, 4 Queens, and 4 Jacks. -------------------- # of ways to pick a King = 4 # of ways to pick a Queen = 4 # of ways to pick a Jack = 4 Total # of ways = 4*4*4 = 64 --------------- Not based on permutations or combinations. This is an application of the general counting rule. ============== Cheers, Stan H.
