Hello, robin!

I'd like to help you, but I don't understand your question.

When we flip the coin 100 times, are we counting the number of Heads and Tails (and their order)?

. . The number of outcomes is: .2^{100} . . . a 31-digit number.

When we pick 4 colors, from WHAT are we picking them?

. . If we're choosing from a box of 8 crayons, there are 70 possible choices.

. . From a box of 16 crayons, there are 1,820 possible choices.

If you flip a coin 100 times and then pick 4 colors, how many combinations do u get?

I said that the first action was not clearly explained.

Taking a GUESS at what was intended, there is an incredibly large number of outcomes.

. . From a box of 16 crayons, there are 1,820 possible choices.

Then I illustrated that the second action is VERY vaguely stated,

. . and that we required serious clarification.

What was the OP's response? . "The total possibilities

How about a simpler problem?

Pick the name of a month and pick a color.

Do you think the OP will get my point now?
