A committee of 2 people is to be chosen from 5 women and 5 men. What is the probability at least one man was chosen given at least one woman was chosen?

Accepted Solution

Answer:5/9Step-by-step explanation:At the beginning, there are 5 + 5 = 10 people to choose from. After one woman is chosen, that number goes down to 10 - 1 Β = 9 people. 5 men are still left to choose from, so there is a 5/9 chance at least one man will be selected as the other committee member.
