# Thread: Choosing from 12 people.

1. ## Choosing from 12 people.

not done any probability in years, please can some1 help.

there are 12 people, i am one of those people. one person is picked at a time (not replaced). What is the actually probability of me being picked? is it 1/6?

i seem to get confused with the initial probability of me being picked as 1/12 and then the probability increases to 1/11 on the second pick.

2. $\frac{1}{6}$ is the correct answer if only two people are selected.

But you failed to give us that piece of information.
How many are selected?

$\displaystyle \frac{11}{\binom{12}{2}}=?$
