Tom got a Mr. Potato Head for his birthday. It came with 3 hairstyles, 2 sets of eyebrows, 1 pair of googly eyes, 2 sets of ears, and 2 sets of lips, a pair of regular shoes, and a bonus pair of clown shoes. If a complete Mr. Potato Head personality includes eyebrows, eyes, ears, lips, shoes and optionally hair, how many different wacky personalities can Tom come up with? Note that Mr. Potato Head can be bald.

We have

 

4 hairstyles  [ including bald ]

2 eyebrows

1 eyes

2 ears

2 lips

2 shoes

 

So....the total  "personalities"  =  4 * 2 * 1 * 2 *  2 * 2  =   64

 

EDIT TO CORRECT A PREVIOUS ERROR
