That is awesome work, exactly 50%

It seems incredible to have 4 on the same day. Like spinning 365 number roulette wheel 25 times and getting the same number 4 times. Though thinking of it like that I can see that it could be 50/50 to get 1 repetition in those 25 spins

Of course to have a 100% chance you need at least 367 people - one for each day of the year plus one more.
Still not 100% though.....

Not totally relevant but my girlfriend shares a birthday with her Dad and I share one with my Nephew. I would have thought that would be pretty long odds. My Niece is also only 2 days from my Sister.

I get the logic but still struggle to see that if in reality if you grouped together a number of times 23 people that reality will match the logic used.
Can't we simply prove or disprove this with how many posters it takes to find someone who shares our birthday?

I'll start if anyone wants to join

For those of you going to the match tomorrow, here's something you can do while you wait for kickoff. (Btw, he mentions my birthday in the video. There has to be something like a .54% chance of that happening)

Since we have another World Cup coming up, I decided to check out some birthdays. Of the 24 teams playing in the Women's World Cup coming up, 11 have players that share the same birthday. Brazil is the only country with more than one duplicate birthday with two. There are two Brazilians and two Chileans that were born on December 17th.

Throughout the whole tournament, there are three players born on 12/17/1993 and 10/2/1992. There are 28 other instances of two players having the same exact birthday (including year).

For extra completeness, I checked out the birthdays for the squads in the U-20 World Cup. Of the 24 of those teams, 12 had players with the same birthday. Norway, Poland, Senegal and the US had two pairs of players with the same birthday while Portugal had three sets.

Another tournament and I've checked to see how many teams have players with matching birthdays. This time, teams are allowed to select up to 26 players for the tourney. As a result, this tournament has 18 of the 24 teams with multiple players with the same birthday. North Macedonia and Poland have 4 sets of players with the same birthday. England and Turkey have 3 sets. In fact, there is one team that not only has three players that share the same birthday but those players all play for the same club team. Bit of trivia for you to guess.

Of course to have a 100% chance you need at least 367 people - one for each day of the year plus one more.
I'm not sure that having 367 people in a room guarantees that at least two of them will have the same birthday.
