One easy way to represent each combination is simply to make a square, with possible entrees on the top and possible desserts on the side. Each box within the square represents a possible meal — you can see it by placing your cursor in the box.

Notice that **along the top we have the complete set of possible entrees. Along the side we have the complete set of possible desserts. **Certainly no one person would order all five desserts, or all five entrees! In fact for any given meal, **we only want to choose ONE from the top and ONE from the side. **

Try it below: clicking on *Pick a meal for me!* will pick a random entrée and a random dessert
