Help with math problem

27 posts in this topic

The trouble is that I needed to graph some functions. I think I got it, though. To have a 98% chance of someone having the same birthday as you, you have to go through at least 1,426 people. For a 99% chance, you need at least 1,679. 

Yes! I did it! Huzzah!

Thanks for the problem, I really enjoyed it.
