Birthday Paradox

Birthday Paradox

Let’s do a paradox this week, shall we?

Kyle had a birthday here at the roastery last week so it only makes sense to share “The Birthday Paradox” with you.

It goes like this: if you put 23 people in a room, what's the probability that 2 of the people will share the same birthday?

Let that tickle your neurons as you sip some coffee this week…answer is below, hopefully you haven’t already looked!

It’s a fun one to look up and explore.  We like the write up in Scientific American in a particular.  Sometimes our intuitions can fool us!

Have a great week!



Answer: 50.7%, I know right??
