    Post quick simple question on Bernoulli trials?

    Determine whether a probability model based on Bernoulli trials can be used to investigate the situation. If not, explain.

    A pool of possible jurors consists of 15 men and 18 women. A jury of 12 is picked at random from this group. What is the probability that the jury contains all women?

    What is the definition of a Bernoulli tial. Does this situation fit that definition?

    \frac{^{18}C_{12} \cdot ^{15}C_{0}}{^{33}C_{12}}. Do you see where each bit comes from?
