For a commitee, 3 people out of 4 lawyers, 1 minister and 3 retailers are to be chosen. 1 person in the commitee must be a retailer, how many ways are there to choose the commitee?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

1st: There must be a retailer thus we have 3 choices

2nd: Out of the remaining 7 people, the possible combinations are C(7,2)

So there must be 3C(7,2) possibilities. Is it right?
