A machine fires its first shot and hits the target, but it misses its second shot.

All its subsequent shots have a probability of hitting the target equal to the proportion of targets hit beforehand. For example, if it hits 5 out of the first 8 shots, then the \(9^\text{th} \) shot has a probability of \(\dfrac58\) to hit the target.

What is the probability that it hits exactly 50 out of its first 100 shots?

If the probability can be expressed as \( \dfrac ab\), where \( a\) and \(b\) are coprime positive integers, submit \(a+b\).
