Problem Type 12: Three darts are thrown at the dartboard. A score is given for each region where the dart lands and the total score is just the sum of the $3$ dart scores. Assume all three darts hit the dartboard. How many different total scores are there? Enumerate them with by drawing a tree diagram.
