Homework Help: Finite Math

Posted by Sam on Wednesday, October 22, 2008 at 12:54am.

A travel writer is on a cruise. After the cruise, he is going to write
a magazine article evaluating the quality of the cruise, including
the food. (For instance, "On the first night, I had the shark steak
Florentine ... which was superb.") The dinner menu, which
is the same every evening, has 8 fish entrees and 9 non-fish
entrees (e.g., beef, pork, etc.). Each night the writer
selects a different entree and records the selection in his
notebook. The cruise will last 6 nights, so there will be 6 dinnner
entrees recorded.


How many overall outcomes are possible?





In how many possible overall outcomes would fish entrees appear
exactly 4 times?





In how many possible overall outcomes would fish entrees appear at most
4 times?





In how many possible overall outcomes would fish entrees appear at least
1 time?
