    Multiple-choice quiz problem

    "A quiz contains five multiple-choice questions, each of which has four alternatives. In how many different ways can the five questions be answered?"

    I can't think how to approach this. Alternatively, I've gotten answers of 2880, 480, and 120 depending on how I approach it. The book says the answer is 1024. Help! Brain freeze!

    4^{5}=1024

    Because there are 4 choices and 5 problems.
