Here is a simple one but I am having a brain fart this morning.

Say you have a drawing, with replacement. The odds of winning are 1 in 2500 and you draw 104 times. What are your combined odds of winning?

My first thought is to take 1/2500 * 104 which then gives me 104/2500.

Let me know if this doesnt make sense.

Another way of putting it would be, say I have a drawing where there are 2500 names in the bowl and I will be drawing from it 104 times each time replacing the name. What are the odds that any one person would win at least once?
