Assume that you have a total of 12 people on the committee: 3 black males, 3 black females, 1 white male, and 5 white females. Party rules require that at least one black and at least one female hold one of the three offices. Note that if individuals change offices, then a different selection exists.
In how many ways can the officers be chosen while still conforming to party rules?
