This question already has an answer here:
I am having an issue with understanding how to calculate a specific case of the Coupon Collector's Problem. Say I have a set of 198 coupons. I learned how to find the estimated amount of draws to see all 198 coupons, using the following equation:
It turns out that for $n = 198$, the expected number of draws is approximately 1162. Let's assume, however, that I already have some of the coupons, say 50. How should I go about solving the same problem, given that I've already collected $X$ of them?
