  5. 5. Team A Composition… Looking at it as Y (yes) or N (no), lets try getting 8 players out of the 19 players who are trying out… Y Y Y Y Y Y Y Y N N N N N N N N N N N So we are choosing 8 from 19.. This can be written as… C 19 8
  6. 6. Team A Composition = n! (n-r)! * r! Is read as “n” Choose “r” C n r C n r
  7. 7. Team A Composition Is read as 19 CHOOSE 8 = 19! (19 - 8)! 8! = 19! 11! 8! C 19 8 C 19 8 C 19 8
  8. 8. Team A Composition = 19! 11! 8! = 5814 So there are 5814 possible team combinations for Team A from the 22 players who went for the tryouts C 19 8 C 19 8
  9. 9. Team B Composition <ul><li>So now our sample space is reduced to 11 since 8 people were picked from a sample space of 19… </li></ul>This time around we only need 7 more people in the team since there already 2 members that are in it for sure… Y Y Y Y Y Y Y N N N N
  10. 10. Team B Composition So we are choosing 7 from 11.. This can be written as… Is read as 11 CHOOSE 7 = 11! (11 - 7)! 7! C 11 7 C 11 7
  11. 11. Team B Composition = 11! 4! 7! = 330 So there are 330 possible team combinations for Team B C 11 7 C 11 7
