1. A coffee shop has 4 different types of coffee. You can order your coffee in a small,
medium, or large cup. You can also choose whether you want to add cream, sugar,
or milk (any combination is possible, for example, you can choose to add all three).
1. Let X be the number of the cars being repaired at a repair shop. We have the

- The probability of having 2 cars at the shop is the same as the probability of
having one car.

Unordered sampling without replacement:
There are n distinguishable objects; we want to choose k
objects but ordering does not matter:1,2,3 =3,2,1=2,3,1.
Thus the number of k-combinations of n objects is:
