A local company has been in trouble recently over hiring male applicants rather than female. Recently 3 employees hired were all male even though the six applicants for the 3 positions included 3 females. The company claims that they have shaped up. From a pool of the 3 females and 2 men the company filled 2 positions with 2 females. What is the probability of that event?
