Hi,
I tried to calculate the formula for the birthday problem
(the probability that at least two people out of a group of n people
share the same birthday)
But the factorial-function allows me only to calculate factorials up
to 170.
So is there a way to push that limit?
to solve this formula:
(factorial(365) / factorial((365-23))) / (365^23)
(n=23)
