a.) If a burger joint has 3 different bun styles, 11 different toppings and 4 different sauces, and the order of the toppings does not matter, how many possible burgers can be made?
b.) If we consider the fact that different order of toppings is a different burger, how many different burgers can be made?
I am completely new to probability and completely confused. However, I think that the first one needs a combination for the toppings, since order doesn't matter. ??
