Adele also must choose between leather or cloth seats for her vehicle. Leather seats come in three color choices; brown, black, and blue. Cloth seats come in two color choices; tan and gray. Using multiplication, Adele says she has (2)(3)(2), or a total of 12, choices for seat covers. Is she correct? Explain why or why not.


  1. Answer: The correct answer Adele is not correct. There are only 5 choices.
    The other guy is correct he just exsplainded wrong
    Step-by-step explanation:
    we are not able to use the fundamental counting principle because there are different choices for each material.  
    There are 3 choices for leather seats.
    There are 2 choices for cloth seats.
    There are 5 choices in all.
    Making a list would be a better way to count the outcomes in this situation. 

  2. Answer:
    6 choices
    Step-by-step explanation:
    Adele has to choose between leather or cloth seats for her car.
    Leather has three colors, those being brown, black, and blue.
    Cloth has two color choices, tan and gray.
    You multiply the amount of choices for leather and cloth:
    2 x 3 = 6
    Adele is not correct.
    hope this helps 🙂
