Suppose I have N containers. R red balls and B blue balls are distibuted amongst them, such that the ith container has ri red balls and bi blue balls. How do I calculate the likelihood that the the ri and bi are drawn from the same distribution (allowing for the fact that R≠B)? I think this is going to involve the multinomial-Dirichlet distribution.
