I need a lil help understanding this... i have a problem trying To
figure out something. I'm trying to come up with a way that will
multiply these numbers and the decrease them by one here is an example

p(x=2) = 1/365
p(x=3) = (365/365)(364/365)(2/365)
p(x=4) = (365/365)(364/365)(363/365)(3/365)
p(x=5) = (365/365)(364/365)(363/365)(362/365)(4/365)

now what i was thinking was let
n = 365
n_1 = n-1/n

i could put that in a loop, but the problem is how do i know where
awww man
how about if i say x = to the number of sets of ()'s
mean if x = 3 I then have 3 sets of ()'s but the last number on top
is x-1

I'm not even sure if I'm explaining this correctly. Seems like I need
two loops just to do this. I don't I can't seem to get it if anyone
have any insight PLEASE let me know.
