One of possible solutions:

Let's find probability of the case when birthdays don't coincide:

1) the number of options for 1-st student: 365 (no restrictions).
2) the number of options for 2-nd student: 365-1 (excepting 1-st student's birthday)
...
85) the number of options for 85-th student: 365-84 (excepting all 84 students' birthdays)

probability = \frac{365*(365-1)...(365-84)}{365^{85}} = \frac{365!}{(365-85)!*365^{85}}

Answer: 1-probability = 1 - \frac{365!}{280!*365^{85}}
