Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yes that is one way to think about it. the other way is more basic. if you have three items and wish to select one, you pretty clearly have 3 choices. if you have three items and wish to select 2, you have the same three choice ( like selecting the one to exclude)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you have 6 sleeping bags and wish to select 2 of them, six choices for first bag, 5 for second and you have to divide by two because order doesn't count

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the last one is therefore \[\frac{14\times 13\times 12}{3\times 2}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0for this problem it is a straightforward multiplication \[\dbinom{3}{2}\times \dbinom{6}{2}\times \dbinom{14}{3}\] \[3\times 15\times 364\]
