in which an example is given to find the minimal number of
people (n) so that the probability p of two having the same birthday
is 50 percent.
let rec birthday p n =
let q = (365. -. float n) /. 365. *. p in
if q < 0.5 then
Printf.printf "answer = %d
birthday q (n+1) ;;
birthday 1.0 1
This is compiled and run as follows:
ocamlopt birthday.ml -o birthday
