The Greek army contained two types of soldiers: the upper class and the lower class soldiers. If there were a total of 5 upper class soldiers, and 10 lower class soldiers in a certain part of Athens, and the battle of Thermopylae demands a force of 4 upper class soldiers and 8 lower class soldiers, how many different battalions can be sent?

This is not hard.  It is combinatory maths.  Use C on your calculator.

How many ways can you choose 4 from 5?

How many ways can you choose  8 from 10?

Multiply the answers.
