Problem Type 8: A high school committee of 6 is to be made from 32 boys and 41 girls. Within this set of students there are 2 senior boys and 3 senior girls. How many committees of 3 boys and 3 girls are there that contain at least one senior boy and one senior girl?

Problem Type 9: Suppose the probability of having a girl is 1/3 and having a boy 2/3. Find the probability that a family of 5 has:

a) exactly 2 boys

b) at least 1 boy and 1 girl

Problem Type 10: Suppose a system has 6 independent components, each of which is equally likely to work. Now suppose the system works if and only  5 components work. What is the probability the system works.Download File: Comb10  (.tex)
