"Laura and Steve are taking a 50-question test with all questions worth 2 points and no partial credit. Assume that Laura and Steve have the same capability of performing well on the tests, that all the problems are equally difficult for these students, and that their expected score on the test is 50. What is the probability that they will get the same score?"(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I'm kind of introducing myself to probability, but haven't studied it too much besides the little bit I did back in Precalculus. Does the binomial theorem have something to do with this?

Thanks for your help.
