I have a bag of jelly beans with approx 1190 Jelly Belly's in it. There are 50 different flavors. Assuming the amount of Jelly Belly's per flavor are equal (so, 23.8 of each bean):
If I pull 6 Jelly Beans from my unopened bag, what are the odds that 3 of them will be the same color?
I'm asking because I got a bag of jelly beans for Christmas and got 3 of the same color in the handful I just pulled out... and it's been many many years since my statistics class in college.
Thank you for the help. It's driving me batty and nobody at work cares about my Jelly Belly question except me =(
I would have tried to figure this out on my own as it seems very easy, but I don't even know where to begin looking.
