### Janna, Kim s., Jon and Jessica. Question 8

Qustion 8**The question:**

Jason Jolt is lending part of his art collection to the local library. He has 5 oil paintings and two water colours. The library would like to borrow two oil paintings and one watercolour. In how many different ways can Jason choose the three paintings?

**The answer:**

You can start by making a chart like this one below.

**Oil painting #1 Oli painting #2 Oil Painting #3 Oil painting #4**

op1, op2 op2, op3 op3, op4 op4, op5

op1, op3 op2, op4 op3, op5

op1, op4 op2, op5

op1, op5

**Oil painting #5**

(there are none in this combination because we have used them all)

____________________________________________________________________

There is a total of ten combinations if you just use oil paintings, but you must double that number because you have to multiply it by 2 since there are 2 watercolours. This will give you a total of 20 different combinations.
