Unhappy 3 lights to one fixture

Okay, so the wife wanted the old chandalier gone and it of course had three wires just like the electrical box.

The new pendant cluster she bought has 3 lights ... so three sets of wires. The question is, can I cap these together to the three wires in the ceiling box or am I going to have to get more wires run.

Thanks.

You didn't describe any of the wires, so I'll just guess.

Connect all three black wires from the fixture to the one black wire from the ceiling. Connect all three white wires from the fixture to the one white wire from the ceiling. Connect all the grounding wires together.

If the wires are not these colors, then do not just guess as to what connects to what. Post back with a description of all the wires.

The wires are white, red and a ground. If I have it correctly, the black wires on the lights go to the red wire in the ceiling. The white wires go together and the grounds go to the grounds.

Let me know if this is correct.

Thanks.
