Question: Choose R Employees

Comment on Choose R Employees

Thank you for the videos! It help me revise counting technics in a fast way! thank you!

Amazing new tricky problem !! I chose first Column B because I only calculated 2 for Column A! Many thanks for the wonderful problems you provided and the different approaches you explain for each problem.

I didn't even do any calculations to reason that the answer is D. My line of reasoning was that we don't know how many members actually make up the party-planning committee, so because of this, we just can't even answer the question. Hence, D.

Even though you reached the correct answer, your rationale would have messed you up if the question had read "....there are 20 ways to choose R employees"

In the original question, the correct answer is D since 6C2 = 15 (i.e., R = 2) and 6C4 = 15 (i.e., R = 4).
However, if we know that 6CR = 20, then we can be certain that R = 3
