Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0this is through probability right?? .. after all probability is Number of arrangement with restriction/All arrangements possible > This is only formula that you have in probability... everything else is derived from this ... thats the beauty of the subject...

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0okk lets keep it this way ... 1st probability that you would find 1 person (he may or may not be a couple)  > 1 now we have two cases for the second selection > second person selected is the other partner of the 1st person > if it is then we need to have the third person anyone if it is not then we need to have the third person as the other partner of either of the two .. =(1/7 + 2/7)
