Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1we are given that the sum is NOT more than 5 so this is our sample space how many ways can you get a sum NOT more than 5 ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1the sum can be 2, 3, 4 or 5, yes ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1how many ways can you get a sum of 2 ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yes, ``` sum = 2 (1 way) ```

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1what about the sum of 3, how many ways ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1you can have : 1 + 2 or 2 + 1 so two ways right

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ohh right, i didn't think you could count both

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1ok good, ``` sum = 2 (1 way) sum = 3 (2 way) ```

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1what about sum = 4, how many ways ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Very good : 1 + 3 = 4 2 + 2 = 4 3 + 1 = 4

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so we have ``` sum = 2 (1 way) sum = 3 (2 way) sum = 4 (3 way) ```

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1can you guess how many ways there will be for getting a sum of 5 ?

ganeshie8

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1thats it, we're almost done ``` sum = 2 (1 way) sum = 3 (2 way) sum = 4 (3 way) sum = 5 (4 way) ```

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so how many total ways are there for getting a sum NOT more than 5 ?

ganeshie8

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1nope, just add them up : 1+2+3+4 = ?

ganeshie8

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Yes! how many of them have sum more than 3 ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1just look at the table that we have created earlier ``` sum = 2 (1 way) sum = 3 (2 way) sum = 4 (3 way) sum = 5 (4 way) ```

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1simply add the number of ways that we can get sum of 4 and 5

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1sum = 2 (1 way) sum = 3 (2 way) `sum = 4 (3 way)` `sum = 5 (4 way)` add them : 3+4 = 7 ways
