HELP PLEASE BADLY OKAY PLEASE PLEASE IF YOU LIKE COOKIES....HEEEELLLLPPPP.... :DDD Virginia and Robert have one dozen of each of the following types of cookies: chocolate chip, oatmeal raisin, snickerdoodles, and shortbread. If you want to divide the cookies into packages of 2 dozen, with one dozen of each of 2 types of cookie per package, how many different ways can they group the cookies?

    I 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.

    It's actually a combination problem as the order of the cookies in each package doesn't matter.
