Find the number of ways in which a committee of two men and two women can be selected from five men and four women?
How many ways can you choose the 2 men from 5 in total? (1)

How many ways can you choose the 2 women from the 4 in total? (2)

Then each possible committee contains one outcome from (1) and one outcome from (2). So there are how many ways possible to do this?

What method have you been taught that would allow you to calculate (1) and (2)?
