Question

A statistics professor once made a big blunder by announcing to his class of about 50 students that he was fairly certain that someone in the room would share his birthday. We have already learned that there is a 97% chance that there will be two people in a room of 50 with a common birthday. Given that information, why was the professor’s announcement a blunder? Do you think he was successful in finding a match? Explain.
