A. 980 B. 1,440 C. 1,880 D. 2,480 E. 2,880 Hi, Few Important points: AND => Multiplication OR => Addition. When Order is not important => Apply Combination formula When Order is important => Apply Permutation formula. If 1 male, 2 females, and 1 child are to be randomly selected from 8 males, 10 females, and 8 children, how many such cases are possible? In the above problem order is not important, so we'll use Combination formula. We have to select 1 male from 8 males, AND 2 females from 10 females, AND 1 child from 8 children. = $$^{8}C_1 \times ^{10}C_{2} \times ^{8}C_{1} = 8 \times 45 \times 8 = 2880$$ Thanks.
