do 4 x 6 x 3 which is D. 72

or you can write out the tree chart with 4 sweaters paired with the 6 shirts and then each pair paired with the three slacks

It helps to draw a diagram. List the sweaters, then draw six lines from each sweater for each of the shirts, then three lines from each shirt for each pair of slacks. The answer is 4x6x3=72.

The SAT math section is extra good judgment-based, mutually as the ACT math section correlates directly to issues you have found out in college. in case you have performed trig (and understood all of it!) you ought to be fantastically lots set. whether you have no longer you're able to do fantastically stable, on account that there are often in elementary terms some trig questions on the topic of the try. besides, look over previous college notes that manage algebra, graphing, geometry, etc.
