Veronica can choose 3 photos in 5C3 = 10 ways
She can choose 4 photos in 5C4 = 5 ways

Total number of ways = 10 + 5 = 15

Answer: D

Select 3 photos from 5 OR select 4 photos from 5: 5C3 OR 5C4 = 5*4 + 5 = 15 (D)

Since the order in which we select the pictures does not matter, we can use combinations.

We must consider two possible cases:
1) Veronica includes 3 of her pictures
We can select 3 pictures from 5 pictures in 5C3 ways
5C3 = 10

2) Veronica includes 4 of her pictures
We can select 4 pictures from 5 pictures in 5C4 ways
5C4 = 5

ASIDE: Below, there's a video that shows you how to quickly calculate combinations (like 5C3) in your head

Total number of possibilities = 10 + 5
= 15
= D

Cheers,
Brent
