And,

**2. If two persons are selected at random, what is the probability that exactly one is a woman?**

For the first one, I divided 110!/2!108! by 160!/2!158!, but the answer was wrong. I am almost certain the formula and math are correct. For the second problem, I am just completely lost, I don't know how to modify the formula to account for needing only one woman for the two applicants.

Thanks in advance.
