    Any Help would be appreciated (probability)

    Lets say I have 12 weights.

    2 of the yellow 5lbs
    2 of the green 7lbs
    2 of the red 13lbs
    2 of the blue 19lbs
    2 of the black 23lbs
    2 of the orange 30lbs

    I need a formula to figure out all the possible combinations and the values for those weights to be configured.

    GOOD LUCK

    You have 14 weights which consist of:
    5lb weight
    7lb weight
    13lb weight
    19lb weight
    23lb weight
    30lb weight
    thats six & you have a
    99lb weight
    oh. BTW
    You have two of each.

    Select two (2) each to get the first group for which you asked.
    Except for the 99lbs set. Just don't use it.

    Actually this may be the only combination set possible.
