INTRODUCTION
I am a consultant from the Excellent Consulting Group. My client, the ABC Furniture Company, believes that the number of customers who visit the store during any particular month is related to the total sales for the month in question, i.e. the client believes that there is a relationship between higher customer traffic and higher total sales.

The probability I am after is the probability that this independently determined ranking then is equal to one of the p fixed rankings. Similarly for the third question, where the x people choose their ranking independently, and then I want the probability that for x people this is equal to one particular ranking. I was wondering if you could help me with this. "
