Save this file as ‘ uniquename _lab_1’ with your own uniquename. (For all of these questions, assume that one year simply has 365 days.) 1. Three people are selected at random; what is the probability that at least two of them share the same birthday? (1 point) 2. Now suppose that ‘n’ people are selected at random; what is the probability that at least two of the ‘n’ people have the same birthday? (1 point) 3. Based on the above equation, use Microsoft Excel to build a chart that calculates the probability that at least two people have the same birthday for n = {1, 2, 3…99, 100}. See lab video for help on constructing this chart. Using this chart, at least how many people must be in a group for there to be a greater than 50% chance that at least two people have the same birthday (part a)? How many for a greater than 90% chance (part b)? (1 point)

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
