    G11 = 10, G12 = 15, Team = 25, (10/25) = 2/5 (2/5)(2/5)(2/5) = 8/125 probability of 3 g11 girls

    Grade 11 Students = 10 Grade 12 Students = 15 25 Students total Basketball Team = 9 players (10/25) chance of ONE Grade 11 student making the team thus (10/25)(10/25)(10/25) chance of three grade 11 students making the team

    I suggest you solve this using combinatorics. Number of ways to make a team of 3 from 10 grade 11 students = C(10,3) Number of ways to make a team of 6 from 15 grade 12 students = C(15,6) Total number of ways to make a team of 9 from 25 students = C(25,9) Therefore probability that there are exactly 3 from grade 11 is: C(10,3)*C(15,6)/C(25,9) = 2184/7429 (about 29.4%).
