Answer:Number of different selections a customer can make = 54Step-by-step explanation:To solve this question, we simply need to see how many different combinations we can make from the given choices.

Let’s first imagine just making two choices. The color of the car is fixed and we need to determine which engine size we want, and then which body style we want. If I select an engine size, i can make 3 choices for the body style. Since I can select 3 engine sizes, the total number of choices in this scenario would be 3 * 3 = 9

Similarly, if we want to find the different possible number of selections a person can make, we simply need to multiply the number of choices he has with each other. This is given below:

Number of selections = Engine Sizes * Body Styles * Color

Number of selections = 3 * 3 * 6

Number of selections = 54
