Guys, please see the question above. I think the question is not clear, especially the first sentence. "A company allocates employees to projects SO THAT some of the projects can be canceled" Did they mean that multiple people can work on the same project and some projects may not have anyone working on them?

Because if we understand as follows:
- 1 employee takes up 1 and only 1 project
- 1 project can have only 1 person working on

THEN, our combination is going to be 4 x 3 x 2 = 24 ways to allocate employees.

Please advise as I am so confused and the explanation from Math Revolution is pretty unclear to me.

Totally agree with you and precisely thought the same thing.

THE question doesn't look like a standard construction.Why will a company allocate project if it has to cancel ?The rest of sentence doesn't seem to connect .

Plus as you mentioned.4*3*2 perfectly makes sense.

Press Kuddos if it helps !!
