## Comment on

Committee of 4 people## In how many ways a committee

Plz explain me this.

## Take the task of creating a

Take the task of creating a committee and break it into stages.

STAGE 1: Select the 5 men for the committee

Since the order in which we select the men does not matter, we can use combinations.

We can select 5 men from 8 men in 8C5 ways (56 ways)

So, we can complete stage 1 in 56 ways

STAGE 2: Select the 6 women for the committee

We can select 6 women from 10 women in 10C6 ways (210 ways)

So, we can complete stage 2 in 210 ways

By the Fundamental Counting Principle (FCP), we can complete the 2 stages (and thus create a committee) in (56)(210) ways.

Answer: 11,760 possible committees
