I am attempting to determine what the statistical probability is of a repeated numeral occurring within a larger number. Specifically, the base number I am referencing has 8 digits. How likely would it be to have the same 3 numerals (such as 444) occur in the middle of the number (such as a number of 1944482)? This pattern would only occur 10 times (000, 111, 222, 333, 444, 555, 666, 777, 888, 999)--the digits to the left and to the right of the center 3 numerals could be any digits in any order.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
