There are 10 parents, 5 teenagers, and 4 adults without children who have all expressed an interest in serving on the committee.

number of possible committees without restrictions

= C(19,7) = 50388

number of committees with the specified 4 adults

= 1 x C(15, 3) , (we must still choose 3 of the remaining 15)= 455

prob of your event = 455/50388 = 35/3876

= .0090

= appr .9%
