## Premiation

How many different man-woman couples can be formed at a dance where there are 12 women and 8 men?

1. 12C1 *8C1 or 12P1 *8P1

2. 202

3. 20 * 8

4. None of the above

We think the answer is 96. However, both answers in number 1 equal 96. But, can be premiation and combination but together in one answer?

## Re: Premiation

That is what I understood. I knew the answer was 96. I just dont ever see premiation and combination together. I did not know if those TWO could be an answer. I do not think they do, so my answer will be none of the above since 96 is not listed.
