    Probability of overlap in independent samples

    Hi Dason, Thanks for the advice. This approach is indeed feasible. I did enumerate all the possible outcomes and I can plot the probability (density). I was just puzzled that there is no simple solution... Thank you very much for your detailed answer including code. I greatly appreciate your...

    Probability of overlap in independent samples

    Hi all, I got a question concerning calculating probability in random samples. Let's assume I have two sets of the size n(1) and n(2). Both sets are made up of the same items but can have different sizes and thus partially overlap, i.e.: n(1) =7, set1 = [1,2,3,4,5,6,7] n(2) = 9, set2 =...
