Course Topic(s): Probability | Basic Probability, basic rules | Combinatorics | Famous Problems, birthday
Part of the Virtual Laboratories in Probability and Statistics. This link is to the extensive expository material which in turn links to associated applet material. The simulation allows for collection of either the number of distinct birthdays or the binary variable duplication to be collected. The number in the population (1-400) and the number in the sample (1-50) are controlled with a scroll bar.
