Answer to Question #801 in Statistics and Probability for Tshiamo
What is the probability of being born on:
a)the 10th of a month in a non-leap year.
b)Christmas day in non-leap year.
c)the 29th February.
There are 365 days in the non-leap year. a) There are 12 month and 10th in each of them. Thus the probability to being born on the 10th of a month in a non-leap year would be P = 12/365; b) on Christmas day (1 day): P = 1/365; c) there is no 29th February in 3 non-leap years and 1 day in the leap year. The total number of days: 3*365 + 366 = 1461; The probability is P = 1/1461.
