Than you in advance.
(Right now, I am doing my best to solve this problem. any help? )
What has C(2n, 2) to do with bowl of 2n marbles, numbered from 1 to 2n? Then imagine you divide the marbles over two bowls, each containing n marbles.
As to (b), the algebraic argument: write out the formulas...
PS. It is easier for quoting if you'd type out the exercise instead of attaching it as a JPG.
Now imagine the marbles divided over 2 bowls, n marbles in each. In how many ways can I then pick 2 marbles in total from these 2 bowls?
a) I can pick 2 marbles from bowl 1, in a number of ways
b) I can pick 2 marbles from bowl 2, in b number of ways
c) I can pick 1 marble from each bowl, in c number of ways
The sum a+b+c must be equal to picking 2 marbles from the one bowl we had in the beginning.
Now, what numbers are a, b and c?
