Answ= No of Ways choose 3 R out of 10 R * No of Ways choose 3 D out of 10 D
why would be 10x9x8x10x9x8 wrong?
You are using Permutations.. that's valid if order matters..
e.g. consider you have group of 3 repuplicans.. R1 R2 R3
how many ways you will select 2 Repulicans out of 3
Is it 3P2 or 3C2??? will see..
Your answer = 3P2 = 3*2 =6 ways
A1 A2 --A2 A1 <duplicate>
A2 A3 --A3 A2 <duplicate>
A3 A1 --A1 A3 <duplicate>
My answer = 3C2 = 3*2/2! = 3 ways.
A1 A2 =A2 A1
A2 A3 =A3 A2
A3 A1 =A1 A3
Did you get it
