    the answer is 72. If you say with first sweater he choose the first shirt, then he has 3 choice for slacks. for second shirt he still has 3 choices for slacks, and so on. so for his first sweater he has 6 times 3 choices which are not the same. and he has 4 sweaters, so overall he has 4 times 6 times 3 choices, with different out come

    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.
