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
