    Ice Cream

    25 different flavours of ice cream available. How many different three-sceep ice creams are available if three different flavours are to be sed and the order of the scoops does not matter?

    Ans: This is just 25C3.

    But what happens if the flavours used can be the same??

    Thanks!

    Also what happens if the order does matter?

    -> It is just 25P3 correct?
