Customer Question

Okay this question is about the statistics. It's about a coincidence. Let's say there is a person living in Brazil that is a member of my family and I live in the United States. Brazil has a population of 204 .4 million people. The United States has a population of 318.9 million people. So my question is what is the probability that it is a mere coincidence that a member of my family who resides in Brazil would hire the same lawyer who in turn hired an investigator that has being in my whereabouts here in the United States. That is , the investigator who lives in the United States that works for my brother's lawyer was at my whereabouts.

To be able for us to compute for this probability, there are certain information that should be provided, to make it possible to compute for the said probability. For example, we need to know the exact number of lawyers to choose from? and if there are other factors or conditions like the number of lawyers (among the total number of lawyers to choose from) who knows your whereabouts, etc. To make the computations more accurate, there should be more and more information to be provided.Hope this helps *************************************************************************************************************************************If you are satisfied and happy with the answer, please choose a high rating.
