4 out of 5 recent US Presidents have been left handers? Given that 1 in 10 of the population is left handed what is the probability of this? Say it was taking socks out of draw with the light off.. 1 White to 9 Black. What are chances of having 4 White and 1 Black.. I get 0.00045 ??(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

More accurately what is the probability that a continuous sequence of 5 presidents out of 43 has 4 left handers?
