I was reading a models book and read about a study where 9 analysts were chosen at random. Out of this group, 3 were selected for 2 week training, 3 were selected for 3 week training, and 3 were selected for 5 week training. Now I believe this models course had the idea that the first group woud be 9 choose 3. The second, 6 choose 3, and the last one 3 choose 3. I decided to ask myself a question.

This was a linear regression model type problem, but I couldn't help wondering how it would stink if you had to train for 2, 3, and 5 weeks. That is, a total of 10 weeks. So, I am going to ask the following:

Assume you could end up training for 2, 3, and 5 weeks. What is the chance you would be unlucky that they would make you study for 2 weeks, 3 weeks, and 5 weeks? What is the probability that you would be chosen for no weeks given this scenario? Also, what is a way I could say, you were chosen to train for 2 and 5 weeks, but not 3 weeks?

Thanks,
