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.

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.

"Believe nothing, no matter where you read it, or who said it, no matter if I have said it, unless it agrees with your own reason and your own common sense"  - Buddha?
