Hi,

thanks a lot. I understand that students have 30 options for their first choice, as repetition is not allowed in this case, they have 29 possibilities for the second one and then it comes down to r-combination (repetition is not allowed and order does not matter). At the end we apply the Rule of Product to receive our final answer. - Dec 20th 2010, 12:14 PMPlato
