    Possible Outcomes

    My problem is--
    1. Draw a tree diagram to show all possible outcomes if you draw a ball from box 1 and a ball from box 2. Box 1 shows A R T. Box 2 shows 1 2 3 4. ?
    2. How many outcomes are there if you draw a ball from boxes 1 and 2?

    Any help appreciated---

    I'm not sure what form of tree diagram you are expected to produce
    but the attached figure shows one type of tree diagram for this
    problem.

    2. How many outcomes are there if you draw a ball from boxes 1 and 2?

    Any help appreciated---
    The number of outcomes is equal to the number of leaf nodes on the
    diagram (in this case nodes on the right), which in this case is 12.
