Hey guys, I'm stuck with a probability problem I hope you people can help me out with this.

In a game played with tiles with alphabets. If 120 of these tiles have consonants and 90 with vowels. Find the probability that a player picks 5 consonants and 2 vowels.


Please help me out with this.

John, you also have presented a problem that needs more information.
We could assume that the player is not placing the tiles back in the mix but maybe it was stated in the problem if there was replacement or not.

You haven't shown any work. Please review the section of your text on combinations. Also read the sticky at the beginning of this group.
