Hey everyone, a co-worker and I were playing a board game and afterward were trying to calculate the probability of drawing cards. Neither of us could come up with an answer and so I thought I'd ask here before I go mad trying to puzzle it out.
The way it works is this. There are 29 cards in the deck. 27 of them are unique (let's pretend they're marked 1 thru 27. And the other 2 cards are marked "A". So they match each other but none of the others. We were simply trying to figure out if you were to draw 5 cards at random from the deck. What are the odds that you'll draw the 2 "A" cards?
If anyone can help with the math on this one, my sanity would greatly appreciate it.
Thanks in advance, Allan.
