# Three reds

What is the probability that when choosing 3 carats from seven carats, all 3 reds will be red?

Result

p =  1.694 %

#### Solution:

$C_{{ 3}}(9) = \dbinom{ 9}{ 3} = \dfrac{ 9! }{ 3!(9-3)!} = \dfrac{ 9 \cdot 8 \cdot 7 } { 3 \cdot 2 \cdot 1 } = 84 \ \\ C_{{ 3}}(32) = \dbinom{ 32}{ 3} = \dfrac{ 32! }{ 3!(32-3)!} = \dfrac{ 32 \cdot 31 \cdot 30 } { 3 \cdot 2 \cdot 1 } = 4960 \ \\ p_{1}=100 \cdot \ (9 \cdot \ 8 \cdot \ 7) / (32 \cdot \ 31 \cdot \ 30)=\dfrac{ 105 }{ 62 } \doteq 1.6935 \ \% \ \\ p=100 \cdot \ { { 3 } \choose 9 } / { { 3 } \choose 32 }=\dfrac{ 105 }{ 62 } \doteq 1.6935 \doteq 1.694 \%$
