OK, here is my take on Shared Birthdays

Please let me know what you think, and if it can be improved (or corrected!)

Hi MathsIsFun,

Looks good and neat to me.

And I also liked the footnote.

Hi MathsIsFun,

The page on probability and chances is well made.

The inferences drawn are interesting. The page is error free, I think.

Commendable work!

Hi MIF;

Looks good!

**In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.**

**I agree with you regarding the satisfaction and importance of actually computing some numbers. I can't tell you how often I see time and money wasted because someone didn't bother to run the numbers.**

hi MathsIsFun,

Thanks, that's excellent. I particularly like the start with an easier example so the explanation is easier to follow for a student new to probability.
