Number Selection Probability

"What is the probability that every number between 1 and 2,000 will be chosen AT LEAST ONCE given 28,000 random selections?"
Question asked by: megiveup

Asked on: 27 Sep 2010

The probability is somewhere between 0 and 1.

Well I guess that doesn't really help you much!

On each occasion there is a 1 in 2,000 chance the number comes up. Maybe the chance that one of the numbers doesn't come up is 1/14, but I'm not sure to be honest what the answer is as that is 28,000 / 2,000 and I'm not sure that is the right way to do this question?
