Just wondering, is there a reason that Texas wasn't scrambled?

It happened to me too! The odds of randomly mixing the letters A, E, S, T and X and coming up with "texas" are 1 in 120.

The chances of it happening twice are one in 14,400, so what are the odds? Pretty good, actually, since so many people have taken this quiz - this implies that one in three people will comment if they get 'TEXAS' scrambled correctly.

If I understood right, it "scrambled" Ohio by actually giving the correct spelling. Since it's only four letters long the chances of that happening are higher than with any other state.

I wouldn't say any other state. You'd be forgiven for forgetting about Iowa, but don't snub my bro Utah.

Asbolutely, the odds are 1 in 12 for Ohio and 1 in 24 for Iowa and Utah.

The worst odds go to New Hampshire, with only one repeated letter, meaning that you've only a two in 285,311,670,611 chance of getting it scrambled perfectly.

@Aesthus I think the worst odds go to South Carolina, which has a chance of an astonishing 1 out of 1.556.755.200. New Hampshire has a chance of 1 out of 119.750.400.

I was unable to unscramble "eabsakm" into "Nebraska". Please fix typo.

level 35
Dec 9, 2013
There was no typo. The "m" was probably an "r" and an "n" right next to each other, which made the letter look like an "m".
