MartinMag, can you explain it using probability, please? thanks!
Suppose we have colors: A,B,C,D and E
Prob of getting 1 shoe of color A=2/10=1/5
After we got the A shoe we have 9 shoes left, then the prob of getting the other A shoe is 1/9
So, probability of getting 2 shoes of color A is 1/5*1/9
Since we have 5 pairs of different colors, the answer is 1/5*1/9*5
Hope it helps!
Here is another way of thinking about this probabilisticly.
Whatever color you pick for the first shoe, there is only one shoe out of the remaining 9 that match it, hence, the probability is 1/9. _________________
