Dear Roger & family:
If you are into this kind of problems, I may heartily recommend a small book by F.Mosteller "Fifty Challenging Problems in Probability With Solutions." Especially relevant to your question are problems #45 and #46.
- Math expectation of the number of coincidences is 1
- Finds the probability of exactly r coincidences
All the best,
