Day 12: Picking a Christmas Card

Discrete Mathematics Level 2

Rachel has found that her class' Christmas cards have all been mixed up in a pile. There are 33 cards in the pile, and she knows that there are \(n\) cards that are addressed to her.

She picks two cards at random (without replacement). The probability that both cards are addressed to her is \(\frac18\).

Find the value of \(n\).
