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!)`

=> 28

**The number of 6 member sub-committees that can be formed is 28**
