I also don't see whether repitition is allowed or not?

*** no repetition ***
total ways = 20C5
no 10s or 20s = 18C5

10 and/or a 20
(1-18C5)/20C5

*** with repitition ***

No 10s and no 20s
5 failures
5C5*(18/20)^5

at least one 10 or 20
1-(18/20)^5

Oh well, here is the explanation then
favorable outcomes when 10 and 20 are included: 18C3 --> Because you have only 3 more numbers (out of 5) to pick from the 18 remaining numbers since 10 and 20 are already out.
Total favorable outcomes: 20C5 --> # of ways to pick 5 items out of 20 where order does not matter
Probability of picking 5 numbers which include #10 and #20: 18C3/20C5

Guys, try to explain the answer to fellow members who request such help. Simply saying the answer or "I agree with the answer" does not add to the discussion. Thanks.
