# Thread: [SOLVED] fundamental counting principal.

1. $36+36^2+36^3+36^4+36^5+36^6=2238976116$

Which I think is the correct answer

2. ya the answer I get the way you say is 2238976116 the text says 223897x6116 the times must be an error.

Thanks.

3. Do you understand why it works?

4. yes (I am fairly sure.) because there are 36 possibilities for 1 digit, then with fundamental counting there are 36 option's for two digits (36x36) and so on.

5. Perfect!

Yay!
