Lets check how smart /sci/ really is.

Solve this without using a calculator.
>A) Every day 5 winners are chosen with a pool of 2000 people.

>B) Every week 35 winners are chosen from a pool of 8500 people.

>C) Every month 150 winners are chosen from a pool of 44000 people.
As a participant, in which option do you have the highest chance of winning?

Assuming nobody is a winner twice, A by a long shot

everyone wins in A in about 400 days =~ 1 year
everyone wins in B in about 250 weeks =~5 years
everyone wins in C in about 300 months = ~25 years

normalized by multiplying by 44000/n, values are
A) 22 years/Cperson
B) 25 years/Cperson
C) 25 years/Cperson
