A monkey in its 40s

  1. Jun 12, 2006 #1

    A cage of 40 monkeys brought originally from England to US's Texas, one got sick of an unknown disease. How can I find the probability to pick up the right monkey that is not sick but next to the sick one.

    First you will have to define what you mean by "next to". Are you assuming that the monkeys are lined up in some way?
