well u see it depends on how much u open
if u open 10 then u have 10 out of 80 chance...

almost, if the prbobility of winning once is 1 out of 8Originally Posted by monkow
then the probobility of opening 2 and both of them winning is 1 eighth squared, so 1 in 16 chance
and if you open 3 and all 3 of them winning it would be 1 eighth cubed, so it would be a 1 in 128 chance.
and yeh, it really does depend on how many you wana open. if its infinity of them, then yeah, it would be 1 in infinity chance, and no, that is not impossible. impossible would be if you had no chance.

EDIT: just thought i tell you... a 10 out of 80 chance is just the same as 1 out of 8 :])
I'm not sure of the odds as PB is, (he does math ^_^) but as far as I can tell, if you bought an 8 pack of '1 in 8 wins' (if such a thing as an 8 pack exists) then you're guarnteed to win at least once, if not more. But the odds of getting said free soda, and that being a winner as well are very low I believe.
no tast your not garenteed to get a free soda but your likely its like rolling dice, you have a 1/ 6 of rolling x number
well usually those kind of contest dont mean 1 in 8 chance out of 8
it means 1in 8 chance of gettting a free soda in 1/8 of the millions of sodas that were made...so if u got an 8 pack u can win 0-8 times.
thats like what i said.... omg..... (shoked_)
but it's not like rolling dice, where you are guarenteed to have a certain number on the die...because all the "1 in 8" means is that for every 8 bottles they packaged, one is a winner- they didn't neccesarily distribute the winning bottles evenly...Originally Posted by ALSK
well if you's want to make things more complicated, we will need to find out how many different chains the company distributes into.... then how many stores that chain has....
then how the cans are put onto the shelfs....
but lets not make things complicated.... :])
