That answer is wrong because you can wear more than one pair of pants or more than one shirt or more than one hat at a time. The real answer is 1830. Accounting for wearing all the clothes and then subtracting one article and adding up the outfits. 60+59+58+57+56+55....

Good one. I need easy ones to ease into the whole math teaser realm.

(And marykai, just so ya know, the answer is right. Consult any math textbook on how these problems are solved.)

Well, marykai, that answer is for the geniusi with nothing better to do. As for the rest of us simpletons, 60 is the answer.

The answer is three. Once he has made three outfits he has run out of pants.

Okay, I knew what you meant, but then it was just a multiplication question.
