      Hi,
      This may at first seem as "unsolvable" but what would be a reasonable
      solution.

      Ten people in a bar are asked to write down a number. What are the odds
      that
      all ten
      will pick a prime number?

      How about Twenty people? Does reasonableness improve as the number of
      people
      increase?

      I think this can be solved analytically within reason of course.

      Cino
