    Let's call it them (married couple 1) = MC1 and (married couple 2) = MC2

    Then, in any two couples - you want P(only 1 husband and only 1 wife).

    Which is P(MC1 both has degree)P(MC2 neither has degree) + P(MC2 both has degree + MC1 both has degree) + (stuff)

    = \frac{11}{24} \times \frac{43}{120} + \frac{11}{24} \times \frac{43}{120} = 2\left(\frac{11}{24} \times \frac{43}{120}\right)

    The +(stuff) is the bit you already understand, I think.

    Box part refers to the last two semicolon delimited items in the previous line.

    If only one husband and one wife have a degree, then either.

    a) the two with degrees are in defferent couples - the first two items in the pervious line, or

    b) they are in the same couple. I.e. husband and wife of one couple both have degrees, and in the other couple neither has a degree.

    Edit: I've been ninga'd. :eek:

    But for the first part multiplication they did

    2xp(only husband)xp(only wife) but don't they have to multiply that by P(not the other husband having it)x(not the other wife having it) to complete the sample set of (Husband A having a degree, Wife A having a degree, Husband B not having a degree, Wife B not having a degree)

    Check your formula book or textbook. The first thing I notice is that you've confused \sum xy with S_{xy} or s_{xy}.

    Not checked beyond that.

    No need to check anything else! That's where I went wrong (so stupid)! But thank you, I've got the answer right now
