Hi folks,   Last month I took a new job with a company in San Diego , California. Once there I uncovered that of the 29 employees there that three were  relatives. One is a 2nd cousin and the other two are third cousins. I was blown away, I mean what are the odds of that?

Would this be a probability problem or is this combinatorics? I am not sure where to start and would love to find the formula to figure this out. My mother is super curious too.


PS- The job is awesome
