My first thought was to calculate the chance of finding the pattern starting with a certain digit together with a certain spacing and using that, calculate the probability of finding the pattern in one of the many configurations (configuration = starting point together with spacing). The problem is that some configurations are mutually exclusive - finding one lowers the chances of finding the other one while some are the opposite. How can I take these considerations into account?

Thanks.
