a city council consists of eight Democrats and six Republicans. If a committee of five people is selected, find the probability of selecting two Democrats and three Republicans.
(8C2)(6C3) / 14C5 = (28)(20) / 2002 = 0.28 or 28%
The answer has to be in the form of a simplified fraction.
Ok, then it's 280/1001
No it was 40/143
yep, same thing 280/1001 = 40/143
It has to be simplified or else its wrong
