Step 1
Since only two county supervisors are selected from the list of five supervisors, the formula would be;
! n P r
Where
n = no of supervisors
r = taken supervisor
r = taken supervisor
n = 5
r = 2
Step 2
! n P r = n ! n - r !
5 ! 5 - 2 !
5 ! 3 !
5 × 4 × 3 × 2 × 1 3 × 2 × 1
5 × 4 × 3 × 2 × 1 3 × 2 × 1
( 5 × 4 )
20 w a y s
Hence the sample of space would be In 20ways.
