Suppose you have a friend named Ed. He and his four friends are having ice cream. There are only three flavors available at the ice cream store they are visiting: chocolate, vanilla, and strawberry. One of Ed’s friends, Stacey, eats chocolate exclusively. How many different kinds of cones can they make? They may have only singles, doubles, and triples. Create one or more number sentences that would support your conclusions.
How many orders can STacey make:
1chocolate single, 1choc double, 1choc triple, or three (1)(3)=3
the other four friends can make any flavor, and any two flavrs in doubles, and any three in triples.
(3)(1)+3(3) + 3(3)3 types for each.
So all four can make this many orders..
orders=3 + 3((3)(1)+3(3) + 3(3)3 )
check my thinking.
