Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I believe this is a simple permutation problem. You have four types of cookies, and you need them to be in packs of 2 dozen with one dozen of each type of 2 cookies per package. So, you can do this mathematically, or you can do it the older way. Write the cookie packs you need on a piece of paper. Also write what conditions you need. Then start pairing the cookies together. Keep track of what your totals are, then add them up. The end result should be your answer. Hope this helps.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1It's actually a combination problem as the order of the cookies in each package doesn't matter.
