Designing Experiment Clinical trials of Nasonex involved a group given placebos and another group given treatments of Nasonex. Assume that a preliminary phase I trial is to be conducted with 12 subjects, including 6 men and 6 women. If 6 of the 12 subjects are randomly selected for the treatment group, find the probability of getting 6 subjects of the same gender. Would there be a problem with having members of the treatment group all of the same gender?

Step 1

*Combination Rule:*

There are *n* different items and *r* number of selections and the selections are made without replacement, then the number of different combinations (order does not matter counts) is given by,

Step 2

In the selection, there are 12 subjects and 6 randomly selected subjects. That is, n=12 and r=6.

Substitute 12 for ‘*n’* and 6 for ‘*r’*, then the number of different possible combinations are:

Step 3

The number of different possible combinations is **924.**

**Obtain the probabili...**
