Section 4 l.) A production manager has eleven people in his crew. A special project that will
@ require ﬁve people for about a week has been assigned to this crew. Since any of
the eleven people could successfully serve on the special crew, the manager
wishes to select the crew randomly. How many different possible ﬁveperson
crews can he select from the eleven people? ( W) 'n I, Ill :

due to begin in die spring. Ranox needs to begin stockpiling certain materials and
building up its labor force right away if it receives any of the contracts. Due to the
absence of planning in the past, Ranox has lost sizable amounts of time and
money. The extent of the required buildup depends on the probabilities of the
