.A committee of 6 is to be selected from a group of 6 men and 9 women. If the selection is made randomly, what is the probability that the committee consists of 2 men and 3 women?

1. Reiny

number of selections without conditions
= C(15,6)

number of selections as stated
= C(6,2) x C(9,3)

2 men and 3 women adds up to only 5 people chosen, but you are choosing 6.
Fix your problem and I will continue
