Combinations available... for frozen yogurt?! (Vanilla & Coconut...)Great site. I took statistics and probability at UCLA, but am still unsure of a formula for my friend  who runs a frozen yogurt shop! There are 7 flavors, 9 fruit toppings, 12 dry toppings, and 4 wet toppings (25 toppings total). Assume you can pick *two flavors* of yogurt (any two of the 7, repeat is ok I suppose), and then pick three toppings in any combination (repeating is ok I guess), how many combinations can he offer customers?? Help with that one would be great! #2 20130813 09:49:58
Re: Combinations available... for frozen yogurt?! (Vanilla & Coconut...)Hi gcolby1; In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #3 20130821 08:50:30
Re: Combinations available... for frozen yogurt?! (Vanilla & Coconut...)BobbyyodaM, thank you. I think that's in the right ball park. #4 20130821 09:05:29
