Probability - 2

100 coins are arranged in a 10 groups of 10 people. It is known that 10 of the coins contain gold while the rest do not. What is the probability that at least 1 group did not get any gold coins?

Of course that result can be rigorously obtained, but who cares?
Combinatorics is Algebra and Algebra is Combinatorics.
