Assuming you can have one and only one type of cheeze (i.e., no provolone and swiss sandwiches allowed), and assuming you cannot get extra toppings (e.g, no sandwich with extra mayo allowed)....
There are 8 type of cheese and 5 toppings. With each topping, there are 2 possible answers, either yes or no.
So 8*(2^5) = 256.
