Variation on Birthday Problem
So, I have read the birthday paradox problem, and now I came across below question: Assuming the following: there are no leap years, all years have $n = 365$ days and that people's birthdays are uniformly distributed across the $n$ days of the year. (i) How many ... $n=23$, this works out to be 0.53 and Yes it seems to me I am done. Please correct me If I am wrong.

Two coins are tossed independently where $P$(head occurs when coin $i$ is tossed) $=p_i, \: i=1,2$. Given that at least one head has occurred, the probability that coins produced different outcomes is $\frac{2p_1p_2}{p_1+p_22p_1p_2}$ $\frac{p_1+p_22p_1p_2}{p_1+p_2p_1p_2}$ $\frac{2}{3}$ none of the above
