Odds of dating someone with the same birthday Live video chat with adult voice chat
But there is at least one highly practical application for this numerical phenomenon: computer hacking.There is a classic cryptographic computer attack known as the “birthday attack” which exploits the math of the birthday paradox.I am dating a man who’s birthday is the same day, same month and same year as mine. I would be bored to tears dating someone so similar to myself.
You can consider the fact that forty people can be paired up in 780 unique ways, and it follows that there would be a good chance that at least one of those pairs would share a birthday.Though it may not be intuitive, the numbers follow the pattern quite faithfully.So does this mean that you can walk into a math class of forty students, bet them that at least two people in the room share a birthday, and win 90% of the time? In real life, where Math is not particularly welcome, birthdays are not distributed perfectly throughout the year.This means that with only sixty people in a room, even though there are 365 possible birthdays, it is almost certain that two people have a birthday on the same day.After making these preposterous assertions, Math then goes on to rationalize its claims by recruiting its bastard offspring: numbers and formulas.
