A box contains 2 red coins, 3 green coins and 4 blue coins. In how many ways can 3 coins be chosen such that at least one coin is green?
(A) 16
(B) 32
(C) 64
(D) 128


Answer: (C)

Explanation: There are three cases:

  1. 3 green coins
  2. 2 green coins + 1 non-green coin
  3. 1 green coin + 2 non-green coins

Therefore, total number of ways = 3C3 + 3C2 * 6C1 + 3C1 * 6C2 = 1 + 3*6 + 3*15 = 64.
