## Main Question or Discussion Point

Form a team by choosing 4 persons among 4 women and 7 men. You need at least 2 women in the team. How many ways to do it?

My solution:

1. Choose 2 women among the 4 availaible women. There is 2C4 ways of doing it.

and

2. Choose 2 persons among the 9 remaining people, there is 2C9 of doing it.

2C4 * 2C9 = 216 ways.

This is wrong, but I can't see why...
