Therefore you can wear your rings in =336 ways

Step-by-step explanation:

Multiplication Law: If one occurs in x ways and second event occurs in y ways.Then the number of ways that two event occur in sequence is xy

Given that you have 3 different rings.

We have total 10 figures.

But you don’t wear ring on your thumbs.

We have 2 thumbs.

So you can wear rings on (10-2) = 8 figures.

The ways of wearing of first ring is = 8

The ways of wearing of second ring is = 7

The ways of wearing of third ring is = 6

Therefore you can wear your rings in =(8×7×6)

=336 ways
