5.Watch the 11-minute video clip called “House Rules” that is narrated by actor Danny Glover and comes from the series "Chances of a Lifetime". Write a brief paragraph that reflects your "take-away message" you gain from the video. Discuss with your group the idea of how a "slight edge" is all that a casino needs to make a profit. Answers vary.
FDMAT 108 (Mathematical Tools for the Real World) UNIT 3 GUIDED PRACTICE SOLUTIONS 7-E 1.Assume that an ice cream shop on the BYU-Idaho campus offers 10 different flavors of ice cream with 5 different toppings. Answer the following questions by using the appropriate counting technique (multiplication principle, arrangements with repetitions, permutations, or combinations). Also, explain why you and/or your group chose the particular counting technique. (See Problem #43 in 7E of your textbook for a similar problem.) a. How many different sundaes can you create using one of the ice cream flavors and one of the toppings? b. How many different triple cones can you create from the 10 flavors if the same flavor may be used more than once? Assume that you specify which flavor goes on the bottom, middle, and top.
