Re: math question verrrrrry off topic

LOLOL you two are cards...

Thanks to all the math answers. I guess it is way more complex than I had anticipated. I was just seeking a random odds thingy (what is the chance of out of 600 objects if 150 are chosen, 3 being chosen) but if I ask for that simple formula (is it 1/4 x 1/4 x 1/4?) then my statistics would actually lie, and support the old adage that you can get statistics to support about anything (e.g. I remember hearing way back when that having a colored toilet determined if you were going to get cancer or not).

Has the father of this mythical fourth person left an endowed chair to
the institution? Or, perhaps more immediate -- what's the likelihood the
family would sponsor the exhibition's reception?

First you need to know whether or not they entered gum prints.
