Hi, my answer was correct. I got my answer through this 18 * 17 * 16. Please let me know why you think this is wrong. Thanks!

That would be correct for permutation, but order would not matter in the case of ice cream toppings. This was asking for combination which means that you have 18*17*16 divided by 3! or (18*17*16)/(3*2) = 816

Weegy: If a coin is tossed and a spinner numbered 1 to 7 is spun, the probability of getting an odd number would be 4/7 User: Two number cubes are rolled. What is the probability that the sum of the numbers rolled is either a 7 or an 11? Weegy: There are 6 ways to roll a 7, and 2 ways to roll an 11, out of a total of 36 possible rolls.
