Unformatted text preview: approxprob = 1  1/exp(1) approxprob (a) Plot the probability of at least one match for n = 1 to 100. Comment on your plot and the convergence. (b) Explain why I say approximate to describe the quantity (11 /e ) and why the plot you’ve created is exact for each value of n . That is, explain what is approximating what. (c) Investigate the behavior of the function by zooming in on the plot. Try diﬀerent values over which to plot the function ( curve(myfunc,a,b) for diﬀerent a and b ). Do you notice anything interesting? Explain....
