There are $5$ senior students and $3$ junior students. They are to form a committee of $5$, in which $3$ are decision makers and $2$ handle logistics. Only seniors can be decision makers. But anyone can handle the logistics.
How many possible combinations (order does not matter within the two designations) are there?
Out of $5$ seniors, we choose $3$ to be decision makers. Then, in the remaining $5$ students, we choose $2$ to handle logistics. Thus, the answer is: $5 \choose 3$$5 \choose 2$.
Is my reasoning correct? (is this kind of question allowed here?)
