Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0this is the question that was right before it 3. Before leaving, Walt gets news that his competition may try to attack him. He decides to arm himself with lots of weapons before he leaves. Walt goes to his local arms dealer and randomly buys 5 weapons from a total of 7 guns and 5 rocket launchers. What is the probability that Walt buys only 2 guns? that answer was 648
