OK, here is my take on Shared Birthdays

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!

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.
