How would you begin this excercise?

- anonymous

I have tried doing the 78!
where 78 x 77 x 76 x 75 x 74 = 2,533,330,800 it is incorrect

- anonymous

Why would it be incorrect? If it doesn't matter if it's one of the Senate or one of the House, it should be correct

it says it is incorrect. that is the most logical way i find to answer the problem. Do you have any other ways? i am stuck on this one.

- anonymous

let me break it down. first we add 27 + 51 = 78
78 members in total
then is asks me how many ways are there to choose a group of five members from the PR Legislature
so I calculate 78! but it is wrong!!! what am I missing?

- anonymous

78!/5!(73!)
the answer is 21,111,090

- anonymous

I'm sorry I couldn't help

- anonymous
