The Fundamental Counting Principle

How many different ways can a the letters A, and B be placed with the Greek letters Σ, Δ, and Θ and with the numbers 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5?

The number of ways in which a series of successive things can occur is found by multiplying the number of ways in which each thing can occur.

2 𝗑 3 𝗑 5 = 30
