**David**, Wednesday, February 29, 2012 at 12:40amThe total number of outcomes is 9C3, because there are nine apples and you are choosing 3 where order doesn't matter.

P(0) = 5C3 / 9C3

because there are 5 good apples and you need to choose 3.

P(1) = 5C2*4C1 / 9C3

P(2) = 5C1*4C2 / 9C3

P(3) = 5C0*4C3 / 9C3
