    To get 100% chance you need 367 people due the the 1 in 365 but under 100% combinations increase the probability a lot quicker

    2 people, only 1 way in which the birthday can be shared
    3 people there are 3 ways
    4 people there are 6 ways
    5 people there are 10 ways
    etc...

    and at 57 people, there are 1596 possible combinations!

    Hence the high chance at such a low number!

    People usually don't have sexual intercourse in some days of the year, and many people have the same favorite days. At least, where I come from, the majority of people I know have birthdays within 20 march and april. Their parents probably were on summer holiday and hadn't had what to do :ahee:

    March is the most common month that people are born in and so this must mean that adults tend to have sex in June? Hmmmm

    Having now thought too much about birthdays, I have found out mine is the 322nd most common (according to US data, anyway). September 16th, however, is the most common, as is September as a birth month as a whole.

    The paradox is that if you place 57 people in a room, there is a 99% chance that someone will share a birthday. I'm guessing you'd expect the number of people to be a lot higher as the chance of a birthday is 1/365

    This thread has obviously gone way past 57 posts and now it's just like who has the least common birthday lol
