There are 18 boys and 14 girls in the class. In how many ways can 3 representatives be elected to the school parliament, if these are to be:
a) the boys themselves
b) one boy and two girls

Correct answer:

a =  816
b =  1638

Step-by-step explanation:

C3(18)=(183)=18!3!(183)!=181716321=816  a=(183)=816
C2(14)=(142)=14!2!(142)!=141321=91  b=18 (142)=18 91=1638
