## math 8.1

**Original post**

Write and post a real world word problem that can be solved using permutation or combination. All of the information necessary to solve the problem must be included.

**First Response to a Classmate**Choose one of your classmates problems that have not been solved by another student and write and post a complete solution. Show and explain all of your work. You can use a calculator to evaluate the permutation or combination, so you do not have to show the work for that.

My family is baking cookies with all the leftover materials from the holidays, this is what we have left out of the bunch:

hershey kisses

candy snowflakes

m&m’ s

red sprinkles

green sprinkles

icing

How many different cookies can we make with all of the toppings left?

The answer that I came up with is 720 different cookies!!!

6*5*4*3*2*1=720

now that’s a whole lot of cookies (if I did it right)

**Second Response to a Classmate**Find a classmate s solution that hasnot already been checked by a classmate. Is the solution correct? Why or why not? If it is not correct, post a corrected solution. In either case, show all work and give a complete explanation.
