It depends how you define "pair"; and if some of the boys and girls are identical (twins/triplets/etc)

If you mean two people then there are 17 choices for the first (10 boys + 7 girls), 16 (10 boys + 7 girls less the one chosen so far) for the second giving: 17 × 16 = 272 pairs

If you mean a pair containing one boy and one girl, then there are a choice of 10 boys and for each choice a choice of 7 girls, giving: 10 × 7 = 70 pairs.

### If Four students have to be chosen 2 girls as captain and vice-captain and two boys as captain and vice-captainif there are 15 eligible girls and 12 boysin how many ways can they be chosen?

1848 This is because: for the girls Sunita is definitely captain. Thus it is Sunita and the 14 other girls as captain and vice captain. For the boys, it will be the first boy and the 12 other boys, the second and the 12 other boys and so on. thus, it is 11x12 for the boys Multiply 11x12 by the 14 and you get 1848.
