    Hello,wikji

    This is a strange question . . .


    4. In how many ways can a group of 10 people be chosen from 6 adults
    and 8 children if the group must contain at least 2 adults?

    Since there are only 8 children, every group of 10 will contain at least two adults.

    The number of ways is: . {14\choose10} \:=\:1,001
