Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Zero or one ball point pens will be chosen. There are C(4,0) times C(7,6) = 7 ways to choose 6 writing instruments that are not ball points. [Choose none of the ball points and 6 of the other 7.] There are C(4,1) times C(7,5) ways to choose 6 writing instruments, exactly one of which is a ball point pen .[Choose one of the ball points and 5 of the others.] There are, then, (4) (21) = 84 ways to choose 1 ball point and 5 others. That gives 7 + 84 = 91 ways to choose 6 writing instruments, at most one of which is a ball pen. answer: 91
