This is a fundamental counting princple problem: (a) we need all three to be girls. The number of ways we can select three girls is 6 * 5 * 4 (since there is no replacement). The number of all selections is 10 * 9 * 8. Thus, P(3 girls) = (6*5*4)/(10*9*8)

no replacement accounts for the duplicates right?

(b) 1 boy and 2 girls is similar to above. Since order is not important, we have 4 * 6 * 5, 4 boys, then 6 girls and then 5 girls. The probability of all is still 10*9*8. (a) duplicates? yea, it means after we pick a girl we don't pick her again.

No. I know they teach it that way, but I think that is a bad way to go. Understanding it this way helps you solve every question, not just the ones in the form you're familiar with.
