The following is actually a real mathematics problem.
Problem 1.2.
Given a plate of spaghetti with $N$ noodles, suppose you randomly connect each end of a noodle to another end, with all connections equally likely. What is the expected number of loops?
Remark. When $N=1$ there is exactly one loop.
When $N=2$ there can be either 1 or 2 loops, with 2 loops occurring 1/3 of the time. So the expected number of loops is $\frac13 2 + \frac23 1 = \frac43$.



Remark. [Jason] Interesting problem.
