Homework Help: Probability Question - Chances Of Meeting Again

  1. Feb 12, 2012 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    Question is pretty straight forward. What is the probability of a person meeting another person 11 years after they have last seen each other. There are of course factors such as relationship, age, location and all that but we are assuming all of the people this person has encountered in their lifetime would have an equal chance.

    2. Relevant equations

    We also assume this given person interacts with about 3 people everyday and lives to be 62.

    62years X 365days X 3 people= 67.890 people on average
