Now we want to select 10 objects from 2 kinds of objects, making sure that there is atleast one of each kind (we cant have all the fruits be of the same kind because we need exactly two kinds). So we first select one fruit of each kind. Now we need to select the remaining 8 fruits from 2 kinds of fruit. There are 8 + 2- 1 8 ! ways to do this. So the answer is 5 2 ! 8 + 2- 1 8 ! . Problem 12. The best way to deal with the pink, lavender and tan balls is to break into cases depending on exactly how many of those balls we choose. So there are 4 cases. Case I: We dont choose any of the pink, lavender and tan balls. This means that we must select 8 balls from 3 kinds of balls (red, white and blue). There are 8 + 3- 1 8 ! ways to do this. Case II: We choose exactly one out of the pink, lavender and tan balls: 3 1 ways. Now we choose 7 balls from 3 kinds: 7 + 3- 1 7 ! ways. So a total of 3 1 ! 7 + 3- 1 7 !...
