There are 24 girls and 12 boys in a club

One girl and one boy are going to be chosen to go to a meeting

Work out the total number of ways of choosing a girl and a boy

We want to choose 1 girl out of the 24 and 1 boy out of 12

So.....the total number of ways to do this is :

C(24,1) * C(12, 1) = 24 * 12 = 288 ways
