Given buckets and stones, the probability that there are no empty buckets is .
More generally, the probability that of buckets are empty after throwing stones is .
Example 1: if you roll a fair die 10 times, what is the probability that you see all six sides?
Example 2: In her book TheHunger Games: Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins, after 74 games one male and one female victor are selected from 12 districts (, ). Is it reasonable to assume each district has a female and a male victor?
Displayed in blue for is the expected number of stones to throw to get at least one stone in each bucket , where is the harmonic number . This problem is also known as the coupon collector's problem with different kinds of coupons. Many coupons are distributed randomly; the above relation gives the probability of having the complete set after purchases.
