##### Solution Summary

The random variables and the variances are computed. The applicants of three lab technician positions are examined. The solution answers the question(s) below.

##### Solution Preview

probability of selecting no man = p(0) = 6C0 * 4C3/10C3
here, nCr = n!/(r!*(n-r)!)
=> p(0) = 1*4*(1*2*3)/(10*9*8) = 0.033
p(1) = 6C1*4C2/10C3 = ...
