There are 8 members on a board of directors. If they must form a subcommittee of 6 members, how many different subcommittees are possible
1 Answer | Add Yours
The number of 6 member sub-committees that can be formed from 8 members on a board of directors is given by C(8, 6) as it is only the members chosen that matter here not the order in which they are chosen.
C(8, 6) = `(8!)/(6!*2!)`
The number of 6 member sub-committees that can be formed is 28
