# Total ways of choosing X men and Y women from a total of M men and W women

Given four integers **X**, **Y**, **M** and **W**. The task is to find the number of ways to choose **X** men and **Y** women from total **M** men and **W** women.

**Examples:**

Input:X = 1, Y = 2, M = 1, W = 3

Output:3

Way 1: Choose the only man and 1^{st}and 2^{nd}women.

Way 2: Choose the only man and 2^{nd}and 3^{rd}women.

Way 3: Choose the only man and 1^{st}and 3^{rd}women.

Input:X = 4, Y = 3, M = 6, W = 5

Output:150

**Approach:** The total number of ways of choosing **X** men from a total of **M** men is ** ^{M}C_{X}** and the total number of ways of choosing

**Y**women from

**W**women is

**. Hence, the total number of combined ways will be**

^{W}C_{Y}**.**

^{M}C_{X}*^{W}C_{Y}Below is the implementation of the above approach:
