Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I got it! (with a little bit of help from a friend), actually the problem is easy the main thing is to understand "with an enrollment of 17"; I interpreted as there are 17 people enrolled. Any subset of the \(17\) could show up in the seminar, and we know there are \(2^{17}=131072\) subsets of a \(17\) element set.
