What is the probability that the committe has at least 1 man or at least 1 women?

  • algebra -

    All male probability: 10/24*9/23*8/22*7/21 = 5040/255,024
    = 0.01976

    All female probability:
    14/24*13/23*12/22*11/21= 24,024/255,024
    = 0.09420

    prob. of at least one man and one woman:

    = 1 - (prob. of zero males) - (prob. of zero females) = 1- 0.01976 - 0.09420
    = 0.88604
