A family of 4, with each member having three pairs of socks, would have a total of 24 socks in their drawer. Each person has 3 pairs, which means they have 3 socks per pair. Since there are 4 family members, you would multiply 3 pairs by 4 people, resulting in 12 pairs of socks. And since each pair consists of 2 socks, you would multiply 12 pairs by 2 socks, giving you a total of 24 socks in the drawer.
