A combination with both scoops of raspberry represents ___ out of ___ possible combinations. Please show all combinations and work so we can understand. Thank You kindly. Courtneys MomAnswer by scott8148(6628)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!Omar can have his double scoop either mixed (two flavors) or unmixed (one flavor) there are 4 flavors, so there are 4 unmixed combinations each of the four flavors can be combined with three other flavors, for a total of 4*3 or 12 mixed combinations BUT . . . half of the mixed combinations are duplicates -- vanilla & raspberry is the same as raspberry & vanilla . . . so there are really only 6 mixed combinations 4 unmixed and 6 mixed gives a total of 10 possible combinations
