## Thinking Mathematically (6th Edition)

The number of ways in which a series of successive things can occur is found by multiplying the number of ways in which each thing can occur. ------------ We want to see in how many ways we can choose the 1st answer, the 2nd answer, the 3rd answer, ... the 10th answer, the 11th answer. Since this is a series of successive choices, we apply the FTC. The answer to each of the questions is 2 (either T or F). The total is $2\times 2\times...\times 2=2^{11}=2048$ The statement makes sense.
