We only want the product of the integers from 365 to 336, so we’ll divide out the extraneous numbers by dividing 365! Of course, we want the complement so we’ll subtract it from 1 to find the probability that at least 2 people in a group of 30 share the same day of birth.
Turns out it was a pretty safe bet for our professor!
different sets of adjectives that a test-taker can receive.
We can apply the naive definition of probability, with the numerator being the number of ways that Bob can match Alice on 4 out of 5 adjectives, plus the number of ways that Bob can match Alice on 5 out of 5 adjectives.
