## Problem

Henry's Hamburger Haven offers its hamburgers with the following condiments: ketchup, mustard, mayonnaise, tomato, lettuce, pickles, cheese, and onions. A customer can choose one, two, or three meat patties and any collection of condiments. How many different kinds of hamburgers can be ordered?

$\text{(A) \ } 24 \qquad \text{(B) \ } 256 \qquad \text{(C) \ } 768 \qquad \text{(D) \ } 40,320 \qquad \text{(E) \ } 120,960$

## Solution

For each condiment, a customer may either choose to order it or not. There are $8$ total condiments to choose from. Therefore, there are $2^8=256$ ways to order the condiments. There are also $3$ choices for the meat, making a total of $256\times3=768$ possible hamburgers. $\boxed{\mathrm{(C)}\ 768}$
