Homework Help: Scores possible at hockey

    The final score in a hockey game is 7-2. How many different scores are possible at the end of the second period?

    8x3=24?

    provided that the score could have been that early in the game and remained that way then all the permutations would be:

    0 - 0
    0 - 1
    0 - 2
    1 - 0
    1 - 1
    1 - 2
    .......
    ......
    7 - 0
    7 - 1
    7 - 2

    therefore 8 x 3 would be correct
