Re: Find the flaw
True, but that's not the main problem. Why did the vector cross the road? It wanted to be normal. #4 20090717 04:36:46
Re: Find the flawI don’t see what the problem is, really (if not the minor one I pointed out). If you have two Black balls and one White ball in the bag, the probability of picking a Black ball is ⅔. If you have one Black ball and two other balls that can be either colour, the probability of picking a Black ball is also ⅔. There is nothing wrong with the probabilities of two different scenarios happening to be the same. Last edited by JaneFairfax (20090718 00:34:53)
