Of the 27 players trying out for the school basketball team, 8 are more than 6 feet tall and 7 have good aim. What is the probability that the coach would randomly pick a player over 6 feet tall or a player with a good aim? Assume that no players over 6 feet tall have good aim.

so there are a total of 15 players that are over 6 feet tall or have good aim. Overall, there are 27 players. The question is asking what are the chances the coach will choose a player over 6 feet tall or a player with good aim. Since there are 15 players with good aim or that are 6 feet tall, you put it into a fraction: \[\left(\begin{matrix}15 \\ 27\end{matrix}\right)\]
