I would suggest this method: How many ways are there with exactly 0 vanilla How many ways are there with exactly 1 vanilla How many ways are there with exactly 2 vanilla How many ways are there with exactly 3 vanilla ... How many ways are there with exactly 6 vanilla Then I would add them up.

To find how many ways with n vanilla, we ask: How many ways to distribute 12n ice creams amongst the 2 other flavors

Perhaps something like this?\[ \Large \sum_{n=0}^{6} 2^{12n} \]

so 1) if a dozen consist the same flavor? chocolate and blueberry = 2 ways 2) if vanilla = 6, so x+ y = 12 , x for chocolates and y for bluberry? until if vanilla = 0 , so x+y = 12 ?

You don't wanna think in terms of x+y=6. We aren't solving for the number of chocolates and blueberry. We are finding the total number of combinations.

I mean options, how many options do you have?

yeah, i think if x+y = 6 , with times and divide theory, (6+1)! / 6!1! ?

Nope, just answer my questions ok? It'll help you get to the solution.

What about if there are n cones.... how many options?

if there are 3 cones... how many options?

but i think, in my case, the flavor has given,

askquestionBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
so, we must think about the order

But having a blueberry and a chocolate isn't any different than having a chocolate and a blueberry... this is what is meant by order doesn't matter.
