Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Okay, that was useful, but we're not supposed to be using the formula for this question. Do you know if there's any way to solve it just using pascal's triangle?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You'd have to expand out to the 9th row! Have fun with that! Fortunately you can do it in excel. :) http://jwilson.coe.uga.edu/EMAT6680/Parsons/MVP6690/Essay1/excel.html
