@ Mr. DumbCow
Will you take a look at these (similar to others you've done tonight)? Thanks.

Assume that you have 5 different types of
vegetables and 10 different types of fruit. A vegetable salad consists of a mixture of any 3 types of vegetables, and a fruit salad consists of a mixture of 2 kinds of fruit.
(1) In how many different ways can you prepare
a vegetable salad and a fruit salad?
(2) In how many different ways can you prepare
a vegetable salad or a fruit salad but not both?
(3) How many ways can you choose two different
kinds of salad?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0#3 First, we need to determine the number of vegetable and fruit salads possible which is C(5,3) and C(10,2) receptively. Then the product should give the right answer.
