What is a multiple choices combination? (Definition)

A choice combination is a series of choices made from among several possibilities. When several options have several choices (multiple choices), then it is possible to list all the combinations of choices offered.

How to generate the whole list of combinations with many options?

Enter the choices on each line in the generator and click on generate button

Example: All clothes combinations among 3 colors and 5 sizes: 1st multiple choice, the color red, green, blue 2nd multiple choice, the size XS S M L XL:

How to calculate the total number of combinations?

The total number is equal to the multiplication of the number of each possible choices.

Example: A car that can have 5 choices of colors, 2 choices of engine and 2 choices of gearbox, will have $ 5 \times 2 \times 2 = 20 $ distinct possibilities

Example: A 3-digit padlock with 10 choices for the first digit, 10 choices for the second digit and 10 choices for the last digit will have $ 10 \times 10 \times 10 = 1000 $ possible combinations.
