## Homework Equations

nCr

## The Attempt at a Solution

a)4*(4C3) = 80

b)4*(4C0)+4*(4C1) etc up until 6.. I get a 256.

c) This is the part I'm not so sure at...

For each scoop, there are 256 combinations.. so therefore we look at it from the perspective of the different combinations of whether the scoops are of the same flavor or not? like

SSS, SDD, DDD, SSD, same and different

so 256x3! ?
