Robin bought a four-scoop ice cream cone having a scoop each of vanilla, chocolate, strawberry and cherry. In how many orders can the four scoops be stacked on the cone if they are stacked one on top of the other?

The website you showed me has the chocolate on the bottom part while this one does not. Thanks, though!

There are 4 possibilites for the top, 3 for the seod, two for the third and 1 for the last. that makes 4*3*2*1=24 possibilites.

The answer is 24. . The key to this answer is in the wording of the question - there are four different flavors of ice cream on the cone - meaning no flavor can appear more than once on the cone. . :-)smiley
