How many different triangles can be drawn that have three of the five points as vertices if P must be one vertex of each triangle? (A) 3 (B) 4 (C) 5 (D) 6 (E) 7 Attachment: 20170818_1027_003.png If P has to be one vertex then we are left with 4 points (Q,R,S,T) and we need to select 2 out of these 4 points to form a triangle with P as one of vertex 4C2 = 6 D

Ans : d  6
If P is one vertex , Then the remaining no of vertex are 4.
No of ways of selecting 2 points out of 4 = 4C2 =6.

The solution should be Option D.
Can be solved using permutations and combinations formula to choose 2 more vertices from the remaining 4 points.
Can be written as
4C2 = 4!/2!(42)! =4!/2!*2! which comes to 6.

Since one of the point P is fixed we need 2 points from the remaining 4 points
So 4C2 = 6
Hence answer = D

The total triangles possible : 5C3 number of triangles with P as vertex = (total triangle possible)  (No. of triangle without P as vertex) = 5C3  4C3 = 10  4 = 6 Option D is answer.
