The Combinatorial Creamery features  flavors of ice cream. Their Big Bowls have three scoops of ice cream of your choice, which do not need to be of different flavors. (The order in which these are scooped doesn't matter, since it all goes into a big bowl.) How many different Big Bowls could you possibly order from the Combinatorial Creamery?

I believe you have left something out, as you did not state the total amount of flavors. For your reference, you can find the answer by finding C(total amount of flavors, 3)

They probably forgot to copy the LaTeX from their homework indecision

By the way, since the flavors can be repeated there would be more than just \(\binom n3\) selections.
