Question #10 (incorrect)

Hello Forum,

I wanted your take as to the most efficient course of action regarding solving a problem such as the one below. I would appreciate it if you could walk me through your work and thought process. I'm having trouble with these question types. Thanks!

At a high school assembly, the principal plans to give out awards for extraordinary achievement. The nominees for the awards are the most highly rated teachers and the students with the most improved GPAs. How many different groups of award recipients can be chosen in which at least one recipient is a teacher? (Two groups of award recipients are considered different if at least one group member is different.)

(A) 20
(B) 30
(C) 46
(D) 60
(E) 120

Pleas check th questions before posting. Original question is below:

At a high school assembly, the principal plans to give out 3 awards for extraordinary achievement. The nominees for the awards are the 3 most highly rated teachers and the 5 students with the most improved GPAs. How many different groups of award recipients can be chosen in which at least one recipient is a teacher? (Two groups of award recipients are considered different if at least one group member is different.)

(A) 20
(B) 30
(C) 46
(D) 60
(E) 120

There are total of 3+5=8 nominees.

# of different groups of 3 out of 8 nominees with AT LEAST 1 teacher = total # of different groups of 3 out of 8 nominees minus # of different groups of 3 with ONLY students (with no teacher in them) --> \(C^3_8-C^3_5=46\).

Answer: C.
