1. ## 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

2. 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
