number of ways to select 7 coupons = C(15,7).

we select 9.

the rest 6 to be selected from 1 - 8.

ways = C(8,6).

probabilty is C(8,6) / C(15,7) ???

galat ho sakta hai. probability nahi kari acche se..

it is with replacement so n(s)=15^7 now...........we have to select n(E) such that 9 maximum appears so every ball must be selected from first none balls we have n(E)=9^7 so p(E)=9^7/15^7

i had ot read the word with replacements.

so now i know what it means,

number of ways to pick up 7 coupons is 15^7. cause we have 15 choices on each time we pick.

there 9^7 ways to pick the coupons numbered 1 to 9.

we want at least one 9.

therefore number of ways = (total ways) - (ways where we don't have 9 and select from 1 to 8) = 9^7 - 8^7.
