    fizz fizz away




    okay one more for you that i think I know the answer.
    i apologize if these must seem easy and I may seem but hey i am not the brightest in math.

    fizz fizz has two types of soda, regular and diet. IF a researcher has 8 boxes of each, (16 total) how many ways can he pick two boxes of each?

    Seriously i feel really dumb and I should be able to figure it out, but I am having anguish
    So thank you so much

    hilary

    784 is that the answer.

    Hilary,

    First of all, you're not dumb, so stop calling yourself that....

    Secondly, yes, 784 is the answer....you've gotten 2 out of 2 correct!!!!

    I think you know how to get the answer - if you want to send me a PM to discuss it, don't hesitate...don't think about it in mathematical terms, visualize yourself actually doing the actions described in the problem if that helps.

    Hint: it involves combinations, and the concept of independence that I explained before

    More than happy to help,
    John
