If you haven't looked at the Probability Question and want to before seeing the answer, don't click.


The answer is 25. Almost nobody got it on the intuitive guess, but more than half of you got it after doing the math. I screened a couple of comments at first, since they gave the answer away, but I'll unscreen them now-- they give a good description of how it works. If you're not pretty well versed in probability, the answer is completely non-intuitive.

This was slightly reworded from a problem on rec.gambling.poker. My first guess was 24.
