4!/4^4 = 3/32
prob of having 4 different numbers drawn by 4 different people where order counts: 4!
total # of outcomes for each person to draw 1 of 4 different numbers: 4^4

Sole combination is (1,2,3,4) so 4! ways to allocate these 4 numbers.
Each person has 4 choices so total number of picks = 4^4

4!/4^4 = 6.4/(4.64)=6/64=3/32 id est 1/11 = 0,090909...
