A song for teaching about the multiplication rule. Using the popular topic among young adults of relationships, the multiplication principle is memorably illustrated by having Paul Simon's #1 hit song (which states only a half-dozen ways to leave your lover, not 50) revisited to show 50 literal paths for ending a relationship: (5 reasons for the decision) X (5 methods to relay the decision) X (2 options for handling acquired stuff). The lyrics were written by Larry Lesser from The University of Texas at El Paso to the tune of the same-titled 1975 song by Paul Simon. Vocals in the audio recording are by Abeni Merryweather produced by Nico Acedo from UTEP's commercial music program. The song tied for second place in the 2023 A-mu-sing contest.
