the answer is 10

2. GabrielleTinnirello

Thank you!

3. satellite73

the answer is most assuredly not ten

4. ParthKohli

But is it mentioned that we'll have 2 boys and 2 girls?

5. ParthKohli

It'd be 10c4 according to me.

6. ParthKohli

$$\Large \color{Black}{\Rightarrow _{10}C_{4} = {10! \over (10 - 4)! \times 4!} }$$

7. satellite73

and my answer is also wrong, because i thought it was two boys and two girls. wrongo answer is $\dbinom{10}{4}=\frac{10\times 9\times 8\times 7}{4\times 3\times 2}=10\times 3\times 7$

8. ParthKohli

Thank you satellite!
