    according to the simulations i've done...

    100 ppl are randomly assigned to 100 rooms...
    ---> the Most crowded room is occupied by 5 people. (A)

    1000 ppl are randomly assigned to 1000 rooms...
    ---> the Most crowded room is occupied by 5 people. (B)

    10000 ppl are randomly assigned to 1000 rooms...
    ---> the Most crowded room is occupied by 22 people.


    22 above seems to be wrong.

    really ? waht do you propose ?

    Sorry, I misread as 10000 people / 10000 rooms. For 10000 people / 1000 rooms 22 is in agreement with my results.




    ------------ so NOW (for the 1st time in my life) i've seen a real example of ....
    why putting a Comma within 4 zeros (0000) can be useful !


    10000 ppl are randomly assigned to 1000 rooms...
    ---> the Most crowded room is occupied by 22 people.

    ------vs.------

    10,000 ppl are randomly assigned to 1,000 rooms...
    ---> the Most crowded room is occupied by 22 people.



    OTOH ------------ Currently, in European countries except for the United Kingdom, the comma is used as the decimal separator. In the United Kingdom, the raised dot is used, and in the United States, the baseline dot is used.
