What are the chances that at least two out of a group of fifty people share the same birthday?..

Answer / guest

The probability of atleast two out of a group of 50 people
share the same birthday is 97%

Probability of atleast two share the same birthday = 1 -
probability of all 50 have different birthdays

Probability of all 50 have different birthday

= 365/365 * 364/365 * 363/365 * ... * 317/365 * 316/365

= (365 * 364 * 363 * 362 * ... * 317 * 316)/36550

= 0.0296264

Probability of atleast two share the same birthday

= 1 - 0.0296264

= 0.9703735

= 97% approx.

Thus, the probability of atleast two out of a group of 50
people share the same birthday is 97%

In the middle of the confounded desert, there is the lost city of "Ash". To reach it, I will have to travel overland by foot from the coast. On a trek like this, each person can only carry enough rations for five days and the farthest we can travel in one day is 30 miles. Also, the city is 120 miles from the starting point. What I am trying to figure out is the fewest number of persons, including myself, that I will need in our Group so that I can reach the city, stay overnight, and then return to the coast without running out of supplies. How many persons (including myself) will I need to accomplish this mission?
