Lenny was out on the town with his daddy and they entered a toy store.
“I would like to buy twelve marbles, daddy,” said Lenny loudly.
“Ok, my boy, let’s ask the man,” said daddy.
“We have lots of marbles, sonny,” said the shopkeeper, smiling down at the young boy, “and they come in five different colors.”
“That’s really wonderful, mister. Do you know how many bags with different combinations of twelve marbles with these five colors you could sell?” asked Lenny, cocking his head with an impish look on his face.
“No idea, sonny, but if you tell me you can have your marble order for free,” smiled the shopkeeper.
Lenny told the shopkeeper, who believed him, and Lenny happily skipped out of the store with daddy, holding three bags of marbles in his hand.
How many different bags of marbles would you say the shopkeeper could arrange for sale?
