Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You have to pick four balls, and *at most* three are red, then I would consider the case of selecting more than three  i.e. four red balls  as the number of cases you *don't* want, and subtract this from the number of total cases available. (# ways to select 4 balls without replacement in which at most 3 are red ) = (# ways to pick any 4 balls)  (# ways to pick 4 red balls) = 13 x 12 x 11 x 10  4 x 3 x 2 x 1 =17136
