exercise 2 should be 2520 instead of 252

thus, the result of exercise 3 is wrong
it is 60/2520= 0.0238 instead of 60/252= 0.238

Yeah, I just noticed that too. It's funny because I tried to be clever with my calculations (canceling out factorials, etc.) then I see the different result, and stared at my calculations for a while, trying to figure out where I was wrong, until I did the final division.
