Probability raining for three out of 6 days = 3x3x3x7x7x7/10x10x10x10x10x10

Pick 3 days out of 6 in 20 ways

Prob = 20 x 27x343/10^6.

Probability that it rains on three days = 0.3*0.3*0.3*0.7*0.7*0.7

Number of ways to select 3 days on which it will rain = 6C3 = 20

Hence final P = 20* 0.3*0.3*0.3*0.7*0.7*0.7
