**drwls**, Tuesday, March 10, 2009 at 4:32amAll male probability: 10/24*9/23*8/22*7/21 = 5040/255,024

= 0.01976

All female probability:

14/24*13/23*12/22*11/21= 24,024/255,024

= 0.09420

prob. of at least one man and one woman:

= 1 - (prob. of zero males) - (prob. of zero females) = 1- 0.01976 - 0.09420

= 0.88604
