    But how much does it cost to have 9 friends?

    Math won’t explain how the United States, the country with the largest GDP and third-largest population, didn’t qualify for the World Cup.

    Oh gosh, this takes me back to my Pokemon sticker book days! I used to think the holographic-type stickers were the best!

    It can be lower than $136. You just trade 1 for 2 for those who are desperate. Thus the entire world of economics! :-P

    It seems this formula is based on f remaining constant until ALL people involved completes their album. In reality each person would only play until their own album is complete and then no longer contribute to everyone else completing theirs. Is there a formula for that? ie for how much it would cost to fill just the first album, and then the cost to fill the 2nd album assuming the first player is gone (f - 1), and then the cost of the 3rd assuming the 2nd is gone (f - 2), etc.

    If there's no repeats in a pack you've got to include that too so the first 5 all have 0% chance of being repeats, the next 5 all have 5/682 chance of being repeats, then it's however many you have on average (just under 10)/682 for the next 5 and so on

    Isnt there an other layer of complexity? Are the stickers chance of appearence weighted equally? Or are there stickers that are much rarer than others? Maybe they produce Xmillion stickers for player 1 but only a couple thousand for player 5 and so on.

    What's the math to calculate how much of that money goes to FIFA? One of the most corrupt organizations in the planet...

    A friend of mine works in a printing factory for Panini (I don't know if this definition is right, but I'm sure you get it) and he told me that the sequence is not at all random. Every sachet has always 5 different stickers and every sequence of sachet has different stickers. I think that using discrete intervals would complicate a lot the calculus!

    The funny part is trying to complete the album with less than the total cost....

    The fact that within a Panini-Packet there never are doubles should change the math quite a bit too, shouldn't it?
