Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the possible number of students selected from the 8 enrolled in data management are x = 0 x = 1 x= 2 x = 3 x = 4 x = 5 the number of ways to select none is \[P(x=0)=\frac{7\times 6\times 5\times 4\times 3}{\dbinom{15}{5}}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[P(x=1)=\frac{\dbinom{8}{1}\times \dbinom{7}{4}}{\dbinom{15}{5}}\] that is the number of ways to choose one from the 8 times the number of ways to choose 4 from the other seven, divided by total number of ways to choose 5 from 15 others are similar
