Combination or permutation? Am I doing it wright?
12 players of a softball team show up for a game:
Of the 12 people who show up, 2 are women.
How many ways are there to choose 10 players to take the field (disregarding positions) if at least one of these players must be women?

I think it's a combination C(11,9)*C(2,1)=55*2
Is 110 ways the answer?
