a. there is an equal number of architects, engineers and electricians

b. two particular engineers cannot be in the committee?

c. there are at least 3 electricians?

a. equal number of each

Combinations again..

architects 4!/(2!2!)

engineers 6!/(2!4!)

electricians 9!/(2!7!)

b. remove the 2 engineers from the choices which would leave 4 architechts, 4 engineers and 9 electricians Now, we have 17 to choose from to make a group of 6.

17!/(6! 11!)
