10C3 - 6C3 = 120 - 20 = 100

1 professor is must so we need group of 2 from 3 prof and 6 students

1 prof (3C1)+ 1 student (6C1)= 3+6=9
2 prof (3C2) + no student=3
0 prof + 2 students (6C2)=15
9+3+15=27

B. In how many ways can this group be formed if it has to include 2 professors?

Only 1 person needes to be chosen since 2 prof already included

1 prof out of 2 2c1=2 + no students
no prof + 1 student 6C1=6
answer 2+6=8

C. In how many ways can this group be formed if it has to include no professors?

6C3= 6*5*4/6=20
