# Looking for this probability problem [closed]

I'd be grateful if someone could post it, I can't find it. It was something about a professor and two students being late to class, blaming it on a car accident. He gave them a make up test with two questions, one of them was which tire/wheel got damaged? Or something along those lines. Please refer if you know what I am talking about. Thanks.
