Hi,

I was listening to a CD a week ago in random playback. At one point three of the tracks played in the correct order (24 tracks on the CD).

For example:

8, 4, 17, 10, 11, 12, ...

(Can't remember the exact track numbers.)

How do I calculate the probability of this type of thing happening by chance? I tried to work it out, but got nowhere (other than I suppose model it using random numbers). Thanks.
