Problem 70E

Reynolds Construction Company has agreed not to erect all “look-alike” homes in a new subdivision. Five exterior designs are offered to potential home buyers. The builder has standardized three interior plans that can be incorporated in any of the five exteriors. How many different ways can the exterior and interior plans be offered to potential home buyers?

Solution:

Step 1 of 2:

A construction company has agreed not to erect all “look-alike” homes in new subdivisions.

The number of exterior designs are offered to potential homebuyers is 5.

Then the builders standardized three interior plans that can be incorporated in any of the 5 exteriors.

The claim is to find the number of ways can the exterior and interior plans be offered to potential home buyers.
