9 labels and 9 jars (Posted on 2002-12-09) Difficulty: 4 of 5
There are 9 jars each with unique labels.

Someone has come and removed all the labels and mixed them up.

If you put the labels back on the jars (without knowing the contents), what is the expected number of labels which would match the contents?
