The Infinite Monkey Theorem 3

My Canadian concubine put on a production of Words, Words, Words, which features a take on the Infinite Monkey Theorem. Infinity is a shitload of monkeys, so I crunched some numbers for her:

Assuming the monkeys are using an old-style 52-key typewriter, the chances of them typing tiffany with the first seven strokes:

    1 monkey(s): 0%
    10 monkey(s): 0%
    100 monkey(s): 0%
    1000 monkey(s): 0%
    10000 monkey(s): 0%
    100000 monkey(s): 0%
    1000000 monkey(s): 0%
    10000000 monkey(s): 0.001%
    100000000 monkey(s): 0.01%
    1000000000 monkey(s): 0.097%
    10000000000 monkey(s): 0.968%
    100000000000 monkey(s): 9.269%
    1000000000000 monkey(s): 62.193%
    10000000000000 monkey(s): 99.994%
    100000000000000 monkey(s): 100%

It doesn't really become inevitable until you get a quadrillion monkeys. Logistically, that's just a nightmare, so a better approach would be to smear banana on the T, I, F, A, N, and Y keys. The number of monkeys required then becomes:

    1 monkey(s): 0%
    10 monkey(s): 0.001%
    100 monkey(s): 0.012%
    1000 monkey(s): 0.121%
    10000 monkey(s): 1.207%
    100000 monkey(s): 11.434%
    1000000 monkey(s): 70.307%
    10000000 monkey(s): 99.999%
    100000000 monkey(s): 100%

With the banana goo, you'd only need 100 million monkeys, and perhaps 25 million bananas.
