I am assuming that 3 people out of 30. Is that right ? But the answer I am getting is not listed in your choice.

30 choose 3.

I hope I won't have to bang out that kind of math on the exam...

Did you know if you type (without the quotes) "30 choose 3" into google, that it solves the problem for you?

Neat.

Wasn't expecting you guys to solve the problem - but who am I kidding - you guys are the combinatorics aces on this board.
