A bag has 5 tokens numbered 1 to 5. Tokens are drawn with replacement until a token is repeated. What is the probability that the repeated token is the first token drawn?
What is the formula for N tokens?
(In reply to re: answers
I realized my error the moment I saw your post.
Not only I have misunderstood the original problem: (what is the reciprocal of steps counted until the 1st token is drawn for the second time - - that's the way I perceived it)- but I ERRED in the indexes and the answers for "my question" - the answers s.b. 1/6 and 1/(N+1)RESPECTIVELY.
