3 birthday problem
Posted:
Dec 8, 1999 6:57 PM


We were calculating ye olde  How many people are needed so that there is a better than 50% chance of having same birthday. Guess what we had 3 with the same birthday.
Question. How do I figure out the probability of at least 3 persons having the same birthday in a class of 23???? ======================================================================= The Advanced Placement Statistics List To UNSUBSCRIBE send a message to majordomo@etc.bc.ca containing: unsubscribe apstatl <email address used to subscribe> Discussion archives are at http://forum.swarthmore.edu/epigone/apstatl Problems with the list or your subscription? mailto://jswift@sd70.bc.ca =======================================================================
