Default The Birthday Paradox Revisited

if you're sitting in a room with forty people in it, what are the chances that two of those people have the same birthday?...Not 11% as most would conclude but in reality, due to Math's convoluted reasoning, the odds are about 90%. This phenomenon is known as the Birthday Paradox
