Hello Everybody,

I am new to this forum and I hope I am posting this problem in the right place. I would really appreciate it if anyone could help me to solve this problem and understand similar questions.

-If a club has 10 member and 3 are to be chosen to be delegates to a conference, what is the probability that Sara, a member of the club be one of the delegates?



The probability = (No of committees that include Sara) / (Total no of possible committess)

No of committess that include Sara = Ways to select 2 delegates from the other 9 members = C(9,2) = 36
Total no of possible committees = Ways to select 3 delegates from 10 members = C(10,3) = 120

Probability = 36/120 = 0.3
