### Probability - 2

100 coins are arranged in a 10 groups of 10 people. It is known that 10 of the coins contain gold while the rest do not. What is the probability that at least 1 group did not get any gold coins?

In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
If it ain't broke, fix it until it is.
A number by itself is useful, but it is far more useful to know how accurate or certain that number is.
