Alejandra's Tapas Bar offers a menu consisting of 9 savory and 5 sweet dishes. You can also get a mix-and-match plate consisting of two different dishes on the menu. How many different mix-and-match plates can you get in total?
9 times 8 = 72 ways.
But since there is a mix and match you'd need to divide 2.
72 divided by 2 is 36, the answer!
