Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3divide the class into 3 and 22 if we choose the 3, then there are 7 more left to choose if we don't choose the 3 we must choose 10 can you post your try?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3that is if we choose the 3 if we don't, then we have another set of choices I would add them 22C7 + 22C10 (the first includes the "3" group)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3notice the second is not 25C10 (because this would allow us to choose one of the "3" and they are all together)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3this stuff is confusing, though if you do it enough (and that means *a lot*) it eventually gets a (little) clearer.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3two thoughts: 1) you are smarter than other people so they will do even worse 2) if you are confused by a question (do this when studying), ask what is confusing? when you get the answer, try to figure out why the answer makes sense, and why it did not before you got the answer.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0"i particularly don't understand the language of this world problems" you're not the only one !! here, assumptions are made about how this plays out, including the following: 1) the decision only to go together is communicated to decision makers [trivial] 2) the decision is accepted by decision makers [important] who then decide to treat *equally* [just as important] options a) and b) where a) = sending all 3, plus 7 others from the remaining 22 and b) = choosing 10 from the 22. if it was about pulling balls out of a hat, so you can only draw 10 from 25, but 3 are glued together [yet count as 3], i think i would it might seem easier. certainly less handwavey

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you can also do \[{25\choose 10}{22\choose8}{3\choose2}{22\choose9}{3\choose1}\] See if you can figure out why this is the same.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1i didn't understand except the first 10 students are choosen from 25 and that 22 comes from the 3 not going from 25
