Here is their odds chart:
|Month+Day+Year||1 in 36,525.00|
|Day+Year||1 in 3,320.00|
|Month+Year||1 in 1,240.00|
|Month+Day||1 in 369.00|
|Year||1 in 113.00|
|Day||1 in 34.00|
|Month||1 in 13.00|
Is it me are these numbers totally screwed up?
There are 12 months in the year, so shouldn't the odds of picking a particular month be 1 in 12? And they only use a two digit year, so that should be odds of 1 in 100, right? Day odds are a bit trickier to calculate, 365.25 days in a year divided by 12 comes to 1 in 30.4375.
Month + Day should be 1 in 356.25, right? There are 100 years in the game, so Month + Year should be 1 in 1200. And Day + Year, another slightly tricky one, should be 1 in 3,043.75
They at least got the Month+Day+Year correct.
Is my math wrong, or theirs? How did they come up with their numbers?
