2. ## Suez Crisis: A War?

Hi, Does anyone know if the Suez Crisis is considered by the IB to be a 20th century war? Meaning, I can study it for Paper two World history topic 11: Causes and effects of 20th century wars? Thanks.
3. ## The Hat Check Problem!

Hi, for my IA I was thinking of doing the hat check problem. Essentially it goes like this; group of men walk into a restaurant checking in n number of hats at the door. The restaurant mixes the the hats up and as the evening is over, each man is randomly given a hat from the pile. What is the probability that no person gets their hat back? Suprisingly, the answer is 1/e. I am a math Sl student. I figured HL/further math students would likely recognize the problem. If anyone is familiar with the problem could you please elaborate on whether this is SL level or above. I have found some explanations rather complicated and wondered whether it was ultimately worth it given the amount of energy it would require with mocks coming up. I know I would be able to get my head around it, but have begun to doubt whether the return (in terms of marks) for this question would be worth it. I have time to change my topic so I am not particularly worried.
