Question #45549

The Birthday Problem: The birthday problem is stated as follows:

If there is a group of n people in a room, what is the probability that two or more of them having same birthday? It is possible to determine answer to this question by simulation. (Hint: You can generate random dates, n times and determine the fraction of people who born in a given day). Write a function that determines the answer to this question by simulation. The program you write can take n as the input and prints out the probability that two or more of n people will have the same birthday for n=2,3,4…. 40
