Ten people, including Fred, are in the Jazz Club. They decide to form a 3-person steering committee.

How many possible committees can be formed that do not include Fred?

If you could please explain how you solved this question,it would help. Thank You!

Well, if they are not going to include Fred, then they only have 9 people to choose from.

So, 9 choose 3 =9C3 = 9! / [(9 - 3)! . 3!] =84 possible committees.
