OK, here it is: probability of 16 ewe lambs and 22 ram lambs from 19 ewes:
P(16/38) = 11,119,987,215/137,438,953,472
This comes out at approximately 0.08 or (if you will allow probability to be expressed as an approximate percentage, a double heresy as far as many mathematicians are concerned) 8%.
The winner of the approximate figure was Luke A. The winner of the exact figure was Michael Truss.
