Shared Birthdays

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.
Of course that result can be rigorously obtained, but who cares?
Combinatorics is Algebra and Algebra is Combinatorics.

Re: Shared Birthdays

hi MathsIsFun,

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