Probability

By Murray Bourne, 07 Sep 2007

This video is quite clever and the effects are (mostly) good.

Now, let's ponder how they arrived at their probability value... This is, after all, a chaotic situation where calculating probabilities would be almost impossible.

Then again, in the real world, that is quite normal.

On with the show.

    I believe the method they used was to take the number 1, then place a decimal point and a whole bunch of zeroes in front of it.

HTML: You can use simple tags like <b>, <a href="...">, etc.

To enter math, you can can either:

  1. Use simple calculator-like input in the following format (surround your math in backticks, or qq on tablet or phone):
    `a^2 = sqrt(b^2 + c^2)`
    (See more on ASCIIMath syntax); or
  2. Use simple LaTeX in the following format. Surround your math with \( and \).
    \( \int g dx = \sqrt{\frac{a}{b}} \)
    (This is standard simple LaTeX.)

NOTE: You can't mix both types of math entry in your comment.
