probability problem need help fast!!!

1.A bag contains 7 apples and 5 oranges. If you select 6 pieces of fruit without looking, how many ways can you get 6 apples?

2.How many different three-digit numbers can be written using digits from the set {5, 6, 7, 8, 9} without any repeating digits?

Hi finitehelp;

2)



3) If you mean exactly 2 fours and four others you have a simple binomial with 2 successes

In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it.
All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof.
