In how many ways can a committee of 5 persons be formed out of 6 men and 4 women when at least one woman has to be necessarily selected?

Answer :

Given that we need to find no. of ways of selecting 5 persons out of 6 men and 4 women in which at least one woman is necessary.


Let us assume the no. of ways of selection be N.


N = (total no. of ways of selecting 5 persons out of all 10 persons) – (No. of ways of selecting 5 persons without any women)


N = (10C5) – (6C5)


We know that ,


And also n! = (n)(n – 1)......2.1





N = 252 – 6


N = 246


The total no. of choosing 5 persons with at least one woman is 246.
