MCQ

ln a class, there are 15 boys and 10 girls. Three students are selected at random. The probability that 1 girl and 2 boys are selected, is

#### Options

• 21/46

• 25/117

• 1/50

• 3/25

#### Solution

21/46

Explanation:
Let S be the sample space and E be the event of selected 1 girl and 2 boys.
Then, n(S) = Number of ways selecting 3 students out of 25.

= ""^25C_3=((25xx24xx23))/((3xx2xx1))

= 2300

n(E) = (""^10C_1xx""^15C_2)

= [10xx((15xx14))/((2xx1))]= 1050

∴ P E = (n(E))/(n(S))=1050/2300=21/46
