I just reran my program; 3 simulations of 1 million each: 389,769 390,135 389,503 I kept looking at my program, at least once daily, and simply couldn't see any flaws...but felt there must be something wrong with it, since I was so far off Jeff's and MATHEMATICIAN's results. Btw, this exercise would be so much simpler if it consisted of: 1: the first 23 numbers are different 2: the 24th number matches one of the first 23 Thanks again.
