Boys and girls

There are 11 boys and 18 girls in the classroom. Three pupils will answer. What is the probability that two boys will be among them?

Correct result:

p =  27.094 %

Solution:

n=11+18=29  C2(3)=(32)=3!2!(32)!=31=3  p=100 (32) 11n 10n1 18n2=100 3 1129 10291 18292=5500203=27.094%n=11+18=29 \ \\ \ \\ C_{{ 2}}(3)=\dbinom{ 3}{ 2}=\dfrac{ 3! }{ 2!(3-2)!}=\dfrac{ 3 } { 1 }=3 \ \\ \ \\ p=100 \cdot \ { { 3 } \choose 2 } \cdot \ \dfrac{ 11 }{ n } \cdot \ \dfrac{ 10 }{ n-1 } \cdot \ \dfrac{ 18 }{ n-2 }=100 \cdot \ 3 \cdot \ \dfrac{ 11 }{ 29 } \cdot \ \dfrac{ 10 }{ 29-1 } \cdot \ \dfrac{ 18 }{ 29-2 }=\dfrac{ 5500 }{ 203 }=27.094 \%
