number of task assignments without restrictions = C(17,4) = 2380

Carl ---- C

Female --F

Male ----M

cases:

CFMM --- 1*C(9,1)*C(7,2) = 189

CFFM ----1*C(9,2)*C(7,1) = 252

CFFF -----1*C(9,3)*C(7,0) = 84

total cases with Carl and at least one female = 525

prob of the event as stated = 525/2380 = 15/68
