How many different sequences of ten flips of a coin have at least 8 heads?

Flip the coin 10 times...let any 8 outcomes be heads  = C(10,8)  = 45  sequences

 

Flip the coin 10 times, let any 9 outcomes  be heads = C (10,9)  = 10  sequences

 

Let all 10 outcomes be heads  = 1  sequence

 

So.... 45 + 10 + 1  =  56 sequences
