How Many Choices of Ice Cream?
If there are 36 different flavors of ice cream and two types of cones are available, how many choices for a single scoop of ice cream on some type of cones do you have?

Is this a combination question?

If so, it is 36C2?

I just don't when to apply the permutation and when to apply the combination formulas.

The question above was quite simple so neither was required. It could've been done with combinations.

Pick Permutations when order matters.
