Unless there is a rather large chance of winning (and a good profit in case of a win)

I am the escapist! I wouldn't place any bet in the first place!

Its not a log(cabin); its a natural log cabin...

I like TLAs more than other MLAs

#9 is my choice

Thanks for the numbers. No

? This could potentially mean oversimplification of the original problem... (which is err my problem)I expected it to be around 25...

Thanks for the number to 20 places, but I really would have needed just 4 places. What about the

s? Actually, they might be more valuable for me...Joke:

Why aren't jokes in base 8 funny? Because 7 10 11!

He demands a dog from the BMW guy coz its more valuable than a sheep

Hello guys!

Here is the exact function..

...and I need to find its global MINIMA (the max is part of the function) subject to:

I hope this makes the problem more readable.

I think you might be confusing things even more. The max function is part of the function. Should I say:

and I need to minimize S?

This is the set of equations you'll need,

is the number of rounds you should survive with lives.Plugging into Wolfram|Alpha / pen+paper gives:

I guess you should accept that my head is a (not too good!) computer...

Tell that guy

"Please ask your question in reverse polish notation for unambiguous answers"

See if THAT drives him crazy... https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Reverse_Polish_notation

Do we really need Markov chains for this problem? Plain algebra should be enough.

Does rotations/reflections count?

Hey, isn't the Earth round?

Oops sorry, I just need to find

such that the function is minimized. Also, I forgot to add in the constrains. Here are the constrains for copy-pasting:Pages: **1**
