64 ways

you need to add 6C0 = 6!/6! = 1 ---> solving none

thanks. i was looking for a direct way to find the total.

for ex: what is the prob of getting 2 boys and 3 girls from 5 boys and 6 girls?

2 boys = 5c2 = 10
3 girls = 6c3 = 20
2 boys x 3 girls = 10x20 = =200

prob = 200/11c5 = 200/462

i am looking for a way to find 11c5 = 11!/{(5!)(11-5)1}
