a) number of (2math, 3 science() = C(4,2) x C(6,3) =120

b) one specific scientist must be in, so need 2 other scientist

= C(4,2) x C(6,2) = 90

c) 2 specific math guys must be in, but we need only 2 maths, so only need the 3 science

= C(6,3) = 20

d) 2 specific science guys are out, so need 3 from remaining 4 science guys

= C(4,2) x C(4,3) = 24
