Hi;

In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
If it ain't broke, fix it until it is.
Always satisfy the Prime Directive of getting the right answer above all else.

Thomas has 16 cookies, where 14 are sugar and 2 are chocolate chip. He wants to share the cookies with his 4 friends, Romeo, Jones, Lee, and Kim. He puts the cookies in a bag and his friends select 4 cookies. What is the probability that 2 friends get 1 chocolate chip cookie?
