# Modeling - Combinations (Multiplication)

Rose was 5 years and
8 months at the time that this video was made.

**The Problem**

You have 2 shirts and 3 pair of pants. How many different outfits can
you make?

**What To Look For In This Video**

- Rose isn't quite doing this problem on her own - I provide the materials with which to represent the shirts and the materials with which to represent the pants. Had I not done that it is not clear what Rose would have been able to do.
- Rose is able to deal with the inability to simultaneously represent all 6 combinations of shirts with pants.
- In retrospect, I could have done a better job in selecting materials with which to represent the pants. The 3 nuts that I chose all look pretty much the same.
