Step 1

1 of 2The fundamental counting principle is the easiest to use to find the number of permutations in this case.

By the $\textbf{Fundamental Counting Principle:}$ If an event can occur in $m$ ways and a second event can occur in $n$ ways, then the total number of possible ways that these events occur together is equal to $m\cdot n$. This can be extended to more than 2 events.

Each time a shirt is placed in the closet, the number of shirts (choices) decreases by 1 so the number of possible permutations is:

$6\cdot 5\cdot 4\cdot 3\cdot 2\cdot 1=\color{#c34632}720$
