What Are the Odds? Math Students Calculate That The Chances of Finding Richard III’s Body Were Terrible
Hey, remember last month when researchers from the University of Leicester used DNA evidence to prove a body found underneath a parking lot was that of King Richard III? And then everyone was all like, "What are the odds?" Some math students at the same university went ahead and ran the numbers. As you'd expect, the chances of actually finding Richard III's body were almost infinitesimally slim.
