Question 48

If equal numbers of people are born on each day, find the approximate percentage of the people whose birthday will fall on 29th February. If we are to consider people born in 20th century (1901-2000) and assuming no deaths.


Assume one person is born every day. In 100 years, there will be 25 leap years. So 25*1 additional people will be born on these days.

So, total people born will be = $$365 \times 100 \times 1 + 25 \times 1$$
And people born on 29th february = $$25 \times 1$$ 
Hence percentage will be = $$\frac{25 \times 1}{365 \times 100 \times 1 + 25 \times 1} \times 100$$ = 0.0684
