I was doing the audit spreadsheet at work today, which has four numbers at the bottom of the sheet: the Guest Ledger, the City Ledger, the Advance Deposits, and the Total of all three.
As it happened, the decimal values on the Guest Ledger and City Ledger both happened to be the same- .58. I at first was struck with a “what are the odds?” notion, but then I realized that, assuming all decimal values occur with the same regularity, the chance of the Guest Ledger and City Ledger matching would be 1 in 100, not really all that impressive.
But then I wondered- what would be the chance of all FOUR numbers matching? What do you think?
