Lets say i have some number 'N' of numbers - in a particular order.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I then remove some fraction 'F' of those numbers.

I want to know the probability of there being (some number) 'Y' consecutive initial-numbers remaining.

Any ideas?

Would it just be F^Y ?
