    Possible Combinations

    I have no idea if this is the right place to put this...

    Anyway, I need to work out all the possible combinations of three things, which in turn are split down. Basically, Days, Months and Moon phases. For example, "Monday/September/Full Moon" or, "Friday/December/New Moon".

    If someone could help out, maybe make a list of all the different combinations for me that would be great. Or at least give me a way to work it out myself

    Thanks in advance!

    In fact, the number of combinations of two sets is the product of the number of possible values of each set.

    On your example, there would be 7 \times 12 \times 8 = 672 possible combinations.
    Do you really need to work out all 672 possible combinations ? Or is there a restriction or something (such as no new moons on fridays)
