Testing the Birthday Paradox
The birthday paradox states that in a room of just 23 people, there is a 50/50 chance that two people will have same birthday. In a room of 75, there is a 99.9% chance of finding two people with the same birthday. In this experiment, you will evaluate the mathematics behind the birthday paradox and determine whether it holds true in a real world situation.
This experiment explores the mathematics behind the birthday paradox and determines whether it holds up in the real world.
