Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.08 binary digits, each binary digit can be either 1 or 0, so I did 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 x 2 or 2^8

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Now to find the answer we can do 8 choose 3, it basically means how many combinations of 3 things can come out of 8 places for lack of better words. The formula for this is (for a choose b) dw:1327813091899:dw
