So, since it doesn't matter which flavor of ice cream I picked win. This is gonna be a combination of 14 to choose three. And so that's going to give me 14 times, 13 times 12/3 times, two times one, which is going to equal 2184 1 2008 for over six, which means that I have 364 ways to choose those three flavors.
