I thought of the following problem by myself and would like to post it as a problem; however, I do not know the correct answer to the problem.
Six people choose a whole number from the range 1 to 10 (inclusive) independently and randomly. What is the probability that exactly 2 people will choose the same number and the other 4 people will not choose the same number the 2 people chose and choose numbers different from each other's?
Example: 6, 2, 7, 4, 6, 10 works
Example: 2, 7, 1, 4, 4, 1 doesn't work
Example: 6, 2, 7, 3, 7, 7 doesn't work
I used 2 different strategies to solve the problem and got two different answers of 1260/5005 and 4536/10000. First of all, there can only be one answer to a problem, so at least one of these answers must be wrong, but I checked my strategies and both strategies seem to be flawless. Second, both of the answers seem surprisingly high to me. This isn't a big deal, because sometimes the correct answer to a problem may be surprising, such as the series being equal to , but even if that is so, I still don't know which of the two answers I got to trust, and I don't even know if either one is correct. If you can solve the problem and reply with the correct answer and why that answer is correct, that would really help. Thanks!
Also, I trust the answer 4536/10000 more than 1260/5005, but I'm not sure enough to post this question as a problem, because 4536/10000 seems very high.
