Re: Is this cool with you?Your formula does look interesting though and I will play with it. Who knows, I might get lucky. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #2053 20140204 20:48:01
Re: Is this cool with you?Yes, I'm also working on it.

Re: Is this cool with you?Here's a joint distribution formula for four consecutive terms: l_a : no. of cards less than a s_b : number of cards selected having face value of b nh : no. of positions available after placing the given 4 numbers E.g. Suppose we wanted to know the probability of sorted order to be 5 6 7 8, starting from 4th position: We take the variables as: 5 5 5 8: 5 5 5 5: change s_d to s_a in the formula and Last edited by gAr (20140205 22:03:45) "Believe nothing, no matter where you read it, or who said it, no matter if I have said it, unless it agrees with your own reason and your own common sense"  Buddha?

Re: Is this cool with you?The ones on Advanced Statistics. So far they are not very good. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

Re: Is this cool with you?They claimed that the books were used for the writing of the probability routines in Maple. I got little out of them so far. In mathematics, you don't understand things.

Does this mean x x x x 5 6 7 8, where x are cards? In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #2064 20140207 03:34:48

Re: Is this cool with you?That is very close to what I am getting with a simulation too. But the formula is not giving that answer. I will check that I have not made some error.

Re: Is this cool with you?Forgive me, please, for taking this thread all the way back to the beginning, and also if someone else has pointed this out in those thousands of posts I have despaired of hunting through to check:
The question itself and the replies given suggest this is wrong, but I would judge this answer correct. The following theorems are all easily proved: The calculation shown follows from them.
