I'm not a math whiz but I would like to know how to calculate this and similar things. if you have a roulette wheel with 37 spots where the ball can land. If you have a limited number of spins, say 10 spins. what is the probability that the same number will appear two times, three times, etc. ? I know one time would be 1/37. but I don't know how to calculate the probabilty of the same number occuring more than once in a fixed number of spins.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
