### How many ways can a committee of three be chosen from a total amount of 4463 students?

The first member chosen can be any one of 4,463 students.
The second member chosen can be any one of the remaining 4,462
students.
The third member chosen can be any one of the remaining 4,461
students.
So there are (4,463 x 4,462 x 4,461) ways to choose three
students.
But for every group of three, there are (3 x 2 x 1) = 6
different orders in which the same 3 can be chosen.
So the number of `distinct, unique committees of 3 students
is
(4463 x 4462 x 4461) / 6 = 14,805,989,111

###### Asked in Democratic Party

### What are the functions of party committees?

There are party committees at every level of political parities
in the United States. The National Democratic Party, for example,
like the Republican Party has an Executive Committee made up of
members from the fifty states. The Executive Committee is chaired
by the party chairman who is the top party official for the
Democrats.
At the state level you see a parallel committee in the State
Executive Committee. In Texas, for example, the state executive
committee is made up of two members (one male and one female) from
each of the 31 Legislative Senatorial Districts. Other states may
form their executive committees differently.
And each Texas County has a party executive committee, made up
of the elected voting precinct chairmen.
At all levels the executive committees have legal
responsibilities specified in law. Many states provide that if a
special election is to be called the executive committee at the
county level or at the state level depending on the office to be
filled will be responsible for naming the party's nominee. Further,
party business of all kinds happens at this level.

###### Asked in History of the United States, US Constitution, US Congress

### Why is the organisation of congress into committees important?

When bills are introduced, they are sent to a committee for
study. Most of them are killed here and never get to the floor for
a vote. Congress deals with many areas and splitting bills by
subjects is necessary for practical reasons. No one congressman can
be expected to be an expert in every area.
Another, perhaps less desirable but important feature of
committees is that they provide a way for senior Congressmen,
particularly majority party members to wield power and control
legislation. Committee chair positions and membership of important
committees is made on a seniority basis.

###### Asked in Indian Parliament

### What is Public Accounts Committee of Indian Parliament?

Public Accounts Committee [PAC] is a Parliamentary Standing
Committee. This Financial Committee consists of not more than 22
members comprising 15 members elected by Lok Sabha every year from
amongst its members according to the principle of proportional
representation by means of single transferable vote and not more
than 7 members of Rajya Sabha elected by that House in like manner
are associated with the Committee. The Chairman is appointed by the
Speaker from amongst its members of Lok Sabha. By convention, a Lok
Sabha member from a major Opposition party is appointed as its
Chairman. A Minister is not eligible to be elected as a member of
the Committee. If a member, after his election to the Committee is
appointed a Minister, he ceases to be a member of the Committee
from the date of such appointment. PAC is assisted by Comptroller
and Auditor General of India. It ensures that public money is spent
in accordance with Parliament's decisions and calls attention to
wastes, extravagance, loss or nugatory expenditure.

###### Asked in US Constitution, US Government, US Congress

### Why does Congress send bills to committees instead of having all members consider each bill?

For starters, it thins the herd. If Congress had to consider
each and every bill brought before them on the floor, their work
would be so bummed down that they couldn't get anything done.
By referring them to committees, the committees can consider
multiple bills at one time (because there are multiple committees).
Also, they can take the bogus, retarded bills and shelve them, so
that they don't unnecessarily bog down the entire Congress.
Basically, a committee decides if a bill is WORTHY of
consideration by Congress as a whole.

###### Asked in Literary Awards

### How are Newbery Awards Selected?

There is a committee that makes the decision. It is comprised of
librarians and teachers and the members change every year. Each
committee member receives a copy of every book from the publishers,
it runs about 400 to 500 books each year. The group narrows down
the books to a dozen or so and then meet to discuss the merits.
There is a winner and the committee can select a limited number of
Honor Books if they feel they are worth it.

###### Asked in Government

### How does the existence of committees in the house and senate enable congress to work more effectively?

The basic idea is that the committees are groups of elected
officials with specific expertise or connections with the know how
or connections to achieve the goals or the committee they are
on.
When an important issue is brought up a committee is used to
iron out any wrinkles in the plan. Then if it passes it may go to
the floor. Now going to committee first actually saves a lot more
time than waiting for up to 400 people argue for months over
every single issue.
So ideally this helps legislatures focus on the important
issues. That is the theory anyway. You decided if it works or
not.

### How do you work out stratified sampling?

If a sample of size s is to be taken from a population of
size n, then every n/s member of the population is tested.
The starting point is chosen at random.
If we want to test a 100-strong sample from a population of
2000, we test every 2000/100 = every 20th member. We use random
numbers to determine the starting point.
