A student dance committee is to be formed consisting of 2 boys and 3 girls. If the membership is to be chosen from 4 boys and 8 girls, how many different committees are possible?

Verified

#### Step 1

1 of 3

To know the number of different committees possible, given that we will choose $2$ boys from $4$ boys, and $3$ girls from $8$ girls, our equation will be

$C(4,2)\times C(8,3)=\dfrac{4!}{(4-2)!2!}\times\dfrac{8!}{(8-3)!3!}$

since repetitions are not allowed and order does not matter in forming committees.
