Two hundred people apply for two jobs. Sixty of the applicants are women. If two persons are selected at random, what is the probability that both are women?

Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

number of ways of selecting two women from 60 women = 60 C 2 = 60 x 59/2! = 1770

number of ways of selecting two persons from 100 = 100 C 2 = 100 x 99/2! = 4950

Hence probability that both are women = 1770/4950 =177/495 = 0.358 approximately

I t should be 200 C2 = 200 x 199/2 = 19900

Prob (2 women) = 1770/19900 = 177/1990 = 0.08

answer is 0.088 so it would be A 0,09
