    Please explain your question.
    As written, it does not mean anything.

    I'm trying to use the combinations rule with C8,8. Here is what I've done so far:

    8!/8!(8-8)! = 8!/0 = 0?

    Is this the right way to go about this problem?

    I still do not know what this has to do with two dice.

    However what you have done is incorrect.
    (8-8)!=0!=1, by definition zero factorial equals to 1.
