My b-day coincides with the 24 hour Readathon this year. We will all skip sleep, read and eat cake together!

StarMan (thestarman) | 1879 comments Anyone ever heard of "the birthday problem?"

It's a math question...

How large a group of people do you need for there to be at least a 50% chance that 2 people will share the same birthday (month and day only) ?

And... How many would you need for there to be a 99+% chance of 2 people with the same birthday?

I'll let y'all guess before I supply the answer. Try not to Google/search for it ;)

I'm going to let someone who's good with logic and problem solving attempt this. Math is my weakest point! That's why I read ;-). Interesting to see the answer.


message 31: by StarMan (new)

StarMan (thestarman) | 1879 comments According to Wikipedia and a couple of nerdy math sites, the answers are:

With any random 23 people, there's a 50.7% chance of having 2 people with same birthday.

With 41 people, there's about a 90% chance....

With 57 people, ~ 99% chance.

With 75 people, ~ 99.9% chance.

You can search (Google, Wikipedia, Yahoo, etc) for "birthday problem" if you want to see the math involved ;p

(the answers may vary a tiny bit, depending on which math formulas you use... it's all above my head!)
