An Italian food restaurant claims that with the choices of toppings that they offer on their pizzas, you can order about 65,550 different types of pizza. How many toppings do they offer?

  • Math - , Wednesday, February 20, 2013 at 11:05pm

    for n elements, the number of subsets = 2^n

    2^n = 65550

    by trial and error
    2^10 = 1024
    2^15 = 32768
    2^16 = 65536

    They have 16 toppings

    They would be able to make 65536 different kinds, which would include no toppings at all, YUK
    and the works, WOW (16 toppings ?)
