Consider a bag containing 4 white and 5 black balls. A man draws 3 balls at random; let us see what is the probability that all three are black?

The total number of ways in which 3 balls can be drawn is 9C3and the number of ways of drawing 3 black balls is 5C3therefore the probability of drawing 3 black balls is given by

P(All three are black)
