For at least 2 women and 3 men, the only cases would be

2W,4M = C(4,2) x C(7,4) = 6x35 = 210 , or

3W,3M = C(4,3) x C(7,3) = 4x35 = 140

for a total of 350 ways

(all possible ways would be

0W,6M

1W,5M

2W,4M

3W,3M

4W 2M )

Worked out combination of women and men

Either 3 women and 3 men or 4 men and 2 women

Then comination for the 2 Women was n = 4 no. of combos was 6 and r = 2 and for the 3 women n = 4 and r = 3 no. of combos was 4

Follow the formula n!/(n-r)! x (r!)

Same process for men. In each instance 35 combinations for Men.

Then times combination for each set which was (6 x 35) + (4 x 35) = 350

350 combinations for the team
