6-cylinder engine wagons = 2*2 = 4 (manual or automatic, with or without trailer);
4-cylinder engine wagons = 2 (manual or automatic).

Total = 4 + 2 = 6.

Hi All,

Sometimes Combination Formula questions come with answers that are relatively small. In this prompt, we know that there are at least 3 options, but no more than 8 options. In these situations, it's usually pretty easy to "map out" all of the possible combinations, without having to do any special math.

We're told that a station wagon has a variety of 'traits':
1) Either a 6-cylinder engine or a 4-cylinder engine
2) Either a manual transmission or an automatic transmission
3) A trailer hitch (but ONLY on a 6-cylinder engine)

We're asked for the number of different combinations of traits on a station wagon. We can list them out:

6 cyl and manual
6 cyl and manual and hitch
6 cyl and automatic
6 cyl and automatic and hitch
4 cyl and manual
4 cyl and automatic

Total combinations = 6
