But to Gomes and Bairos, the uniqueness of their births is just one piece of their love story, which has many more chapters to come.
“We’re still getting ready for the married life, but it’s been awesome so far,” she says.
Come back and tell us about your project using the “I Did This Project” link for the project you choose. For example, one reason why the birthday paradox seems like a paradox is that when in a room with 22 other people, if a person compares his or her birthday with the birthdays of the other people it would make for only 22 comparisons, or, in other words, only 22 chances for people to share the same birthday.
You’ll find a link to “I Did This Project” on every project on the Science Buddies website so don’t forget to share your story! But when all 23 birthdays are compared against each other, it makes for much more than 22 comparisons. While the first person has 22 comparisons to make, the second person was already compared to the first person, so there are only 21 comparisons to make.

It's not as smart as you are, and it may occasionally give humorous, ridiculous, or even annoying results!
In this science fair project, you will investigate whether the birthday paradox holds true by looking at several random groups of 23 or more people.
Will 50% of the groups include at least two people with the same birthday, making the birthday paradox hold true?
Actuaries predict the chances that future negative events will occur in a person's life, and then think of ways to reduce those chances, or reduce the impact of those negative events.
They use a variety of tools and techniques to help students grasp abstract concepts and show them that math describes the world around them.
By helping students conquer fears and anxieties about math, teachers can open up many science and technology career possibilities for students. Read more Note: A computerized matching algorithm suggests the above articles.
Actuaries help bring peace of mind to both families and to businesses.

“Every birthday is a big running joke in the family, and we always celebrate every year with them and our group of friends.” Bairos proposed to Gomes in November 2015 as they walked through the Boston Public Garden, where he asked friends and family to hide throughout the park for a surprise.
