    1. Find the number of combinations of clothing and divide by 2
    3. There are 30 ways of arranging the first number, 30 ways of arranging the second number, 30 ways of arranging the third number. How many ways can you arrange all three?

    4. The chance of choosing a red marble is \frac{number\;of\;red\;marbles}{number\;of\;marble  s\;in\;bag} Note that the number of marbles changes after you take one. Find the chance of choosing a red marble first AND a red marble second.
    5. There are 9 and you pick 5 people to have get a prize. The number of ways of doing that is 9P5 (the nPr button on your calculator). nPr is used when position matters, nCr is used when position doesn't matter; for example if you choose 5 people out of 10 to go to a party with you it doesnt matter who you phone first , just that you chose them so 10C5 is used, if you pick 5 people out of 10 to rank them as your best friends then it does matter which position you put them in so 10P5 is used.
