Solution 14E

Step1 of 2:

We have the number of dum-dum pops in a bag r = 36

The number of flavours n = 10

There are from 0 to 36 suckers of each of 10 flavors in the bag.

We need to find How many different flavor combinations are possible?

Step2 of 2:

The possible number of different flavor combinations are given by

n+r-1Cr = 10+36-1C36

= 45C36

=
