A golf club manufacturer makes drivers with 4 different shaft lengths, 3 different lofts, 2 different grips, and 2 different club head materials. How many different combinations are possible?
There is a formulaic way to solve this, but knowing the concept makes this problem understandable.
There are 4 different shafts: S1, S2, S3, and S4
And 3 different lofts: L1, L2, L3
Just looking at those combinations we have:
That is 12 combinations or
Then there are 2 different grips that all those combinations could have so that makes a total of
Then there are 2 different head materials that those
Thus there are a total of
