if kate has 8 red, 4 blue and 4 green jelly beans in her pocket, what is the minimum amount of jelly beans she can bring out of her pocket that will contain all colours?..

Minimum number? Easy, three beans. One red, one blue, one green.
Now, if you mean the minimum number of random beans that will guaranteed each color. ...
What happens when 13 beans are picked? Can you just get one or two colors, or is three guaranteed?
