In Matt’s pocket there are 8 watermelon jellybeans, 4 vanilla jellybeans and 4 butter popcorn jellybeans. What is the smallest number of jellybeans that he must take out of his pocket to be certain that he takes at least one of each flavour?

I think the answer is 13, but not sure. Can you help please!
