# What is combination (3,1)

### 1 Answer | Add Yours

This means: out of **3** letters (colors, etc), how many combinations are there of **1** letter each?

This is an odd question, since it asks for combinations of 1 letter each.

The answer would be 3. With the letters in the word CAT, for example, the possibilities with 1 letter are C, A, and T.
