Probablity of choosing the same number

  1. May 17, 2005 #1
    There's a problem... What is the probabilty that 4 people would choose the same number from 1 to 4? (e.g they all choose 2)...i think it should be like (4/4*1/4*1/4*1/4=1/64) ...just want to double check cause this is an importatnt quesiton...thanks

    Yup. (1/4)^4 for all the same of a given number * 4 for the four numbers.
