I have three bags, each containing the numbers from 1 to 33. I take one number out from each bag and take the sum of these three numbers.

How many different possibilities are there for my sum?

99
96
97
102

The sum could be anything from 3 (1+1+1) to 99 (33+33+33). Hence there are 99-3+1=97 possibilities.
