Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2There are 20 pizzas. Five are to be chosen. 11 are pasta, 9 are not pasta. The number of ways to choose 5 pizzas with at least 2 being pasta can be done by calculating the number of pizzas with exactly 2, 3, 4, and 5 respectivvely pasta toppings Two Pastas ==> C(11,2) times C(9,3) = Three Pasta ==> C(11,3) times C(9,2) = Four Pasta ==> C(11,4) times C(9,1) = Five Pasta ==> C(11,5) times C(9,0) =

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2The number of possible outcomes is C(20,5) = 15 504 P(two or more pasta toppings) = 13 992 / 15 504 = 583 / 646 = .902 ish
