  2. I think you're right -- but I'm not sure. Basically I'm an English and social studies teacher and haven't had a math class since high school -- over 60 years ago.

  3. you have to do 7*4 and get 28 so yes u are correct

  4. 28 is not correct

    you are selecting 4 toppings from 7
    This is a 'combination' type question
    number of ways
    = C(7,4) = 7!/(5!2!) = 35

    If you care about the order in which the toppings are put on the sundae
    then it would be
    P(7,4) = 7x6x5x4 = 840 , which is not one of the choices, so they must not care about the order.
    My answer at the top is correct.
