How many ways can you select 3 members out of 9 republicans: nCr (9,3)
How many ways can you select 3 members out of 10 democrats: nCr(10,3)
For each single choice of 3 reps you have 1*nCr(10,3) possible subcommittees.
Hence the total number of possible suncommittes is nCr(9,3)*nCr(10,3)
Explictitly
# of possible subcommittees is [9!/(3!*6!)]*[10!/(3!*7!)] or 10080

To calculate you can use the explict formula above or use the nCr function of your calculator

To access the nCr( function press [2nd][5] (MATH) [7:Probability][3:nCr]

You can also just type the name of the command respecting the case ( C must be upper case)

### Let U = {9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15}, A = {9, 10, 11, 12}, B = {9, 10, 13, 14}, and C = {11, 13, 15}. List all the members of the given set. (Enter your answers as a comma-separated list.)

List all members of which given set? The members of U are {9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15}. The members of A are {9, 10, 11, 12}. The members of B are {.9, 10, 13, 14}. The members of C are {11, 13, 15}.

### The math club has 57 members who are in sixth or seventh grades. There are twice as many sixth graders as seventh graders. How many sixth graders are in the club?

Assume that the letter "a" represents the number of 7th graders.
Since there are twice as many 6th graders we can call them "2a".
There are 57 total members, we can make the following statement:
2a + a = 57
We can simplify this to say 3a = 57.
Divide 57 by 3 = 19. (this is the value of "a")
There are 19 seventh graders and 19 x 2 sixth graders or 38.
38 + 19 = 57

### This is what my question says. some scientists estimate that there are 100 billion stars in the milky way galaxy.In standared form,100 billion is 100,000,000,000. write 100billion in exponential form.

1=10^0
10=10^1
100 (2 zeroes after the 1)=1x10^2
1000 (3 zeroes after the 1)=1x 0^3
1000 000 (one million) =1x10^6
1 billion =1 000 000 000 =1x10^9
100 billions =100x 1000 000 000=(1x10^2)x(1x10^9)=
1x(10^2)x(10^9)
Now use the power multiplication rule (a^n)x[a^m)=a^(m+n). Thus
1x(10^2)x(10^9)=1x10^(2+9)=1x10^(11)
100 billions =1x10^11=10^11.
