Identical Birthdays

Suppose you are in a class with 25 students. What is the probability that someone in the class will have the same birthday as you? Will this probability be less than, equal to, or greater than the probability that two people in the class have the same birthday. Explain your reasoning.

Design a simulation that will approximate the second probability. Explain your experimental design and results.
