One thing that I don't understand about this question is that it asks, I think, what are the possible number of arrangments that can be made for both Anna and Paula? If Paula was choosing 3 of 6 distinct slices and 1 of 2 distinct pastries then there would certainly be 40 possible arrangments. Though what are the number of arrangments considering both Paula and Anna? Wouldn't that be more?
