The age old question is how many monkees typing randomly on
typewriters, does it take to type up a Shakespeare play? But let’s
make it simpler. IF you had one monkey typing randomly on a
typewriter, what are the odds he’ll type “to be or not to be”
correctly? Clue: his typewriter has 46 poundable keys and shift, tab,
and return keys don’t count. Ok monkey go! What are the odds he’s
typing that line from Shakespeare? Good luck all players!

SO ME DO SOMETHING NEW!!! Tom Hendricks

Well, it may be the age-old question since the time of the invention
of the typewriter
but probably not before that. It only takes one monkey and the odds
are 1:1 , given enough time ,
but since you didn't specify time, you turned it into a trick
question . sneaky sneaky .
