OK for you math people (Yves?):  If there is a show and 600 entries, and 150
are accepted, there is a 1 in 4 chance of acceptance.  If 3 people from the
same institution are accepted what percent chance is that--is it 1/4 x 1/4 x
1/4 or a 1.5% chance or is it a more complex formula?

Forgive the off topic request but it does relate to photo as 3 of our
program got into a photo show and I want to be able to mathematically brag
about it to the dept. head/dean.
