A piano has 88 keys. Show with numbers the probability of hitting a particular key if you shut your eyes and strike one key.

  • Math -

    If you assume equal likelihood of hitting any key, it will be 1/88 for any key.

    In practice, one is much more likely to strike a key in front of oneself as compared to reaching far left or right.
