Suppose I have a room of 100 people, 10 of which are women. What is the probability that a group of 5, selected at random, are all women.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Is it (.1)^5 or is it (10/100)*(9/99)*(8/98)*(7/97)*(6/96). Or is it something else? Also any references to help me understand this question better would be greatly appreciated!
