Answer :

given: class consisting of 10 boys and 8 girls

formula:

three students are selected at random, total possible outcomes are ^{18}C_{3}

therefore n(S)=^{18}C_{3}

= 816

(i) let E be the event that all are boys

n(E)= ^{10}C_{3}

=120

(ii) let E be the event that all are girls

n(E)= ^{8}C_{3}

=56

(iii) let E be the event that one boy and two girls are selected

n(E)= ^{8}C_{1}^{10}C_{2}=360

(iv) let E be the event that at least one girl is in the group

E= {1,2,3}

n(E)= ^{8}C_{1}^{10}C_{2}+^{8}C_{2}^{10}C_{1}+^{8}C_{3}^{10}C_{0}=696

(v) let E be the event that at most one girl is in the group

E= {0, 1}

n(E)= ^{8}C_{0}^{10}C_{3}+^{8}C_{1}^{10}C_{2}=480
