There are: . possible samples.A drawer contains 5 different and distinguishable pairs of socks (total of 10).

If a person randomly selects four socks, what is the probability that

Suppose the pairs of socks are of five different colors.

To have no matching pairs, we must have four socks of different colors.

There are: . choices for the four colors.

Then we must select one sock from each of those pairs.
