Out of 25 people, 17 favor and 8 oppose something. What is the probability of picking two who favor and four who oppose out of six people?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

25C6=177100 to find the # of ways to get 6 people.

Then find those who favor 17C2=136

Then find those who oppose 8C4=70

Multiply that together 136×70=9520

Then divide by total number of ways to pick 6 people 9520/177100=.0537549407

Did I do this right?
