Thanks, but i need the answer to all three questions

math 
Reiny,
A) choose 4 from 11 which is C(11,4) or 330
b) choose 4 from 6 which is C(6,4) or 15
c) assuming that your group still consists of 4 people
prob = 15/330 = 1/22 
math 
marie s,
thank you

drwls,
A. 11 x 10 x 9 x 8/(4 x 3 x 2 x 1) = 330
B. 6!/(4!*2!) = 15
C. (6/11)*(5/10)*(4/9)*(3/8) = 0.04545
