Re: What do you think?

I do not like psychology or psychologists, They are always asking questions, they remind me of cops.


In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

I agree with you regarding the satisfaction and importance of actually computing some numbers. I can't tell you how often I see time and money wasted because someone didn't bother to run the numbers.

Re: What do you think?

Cops are good for banning GiB

What about Gangnam Style?

Re: What do you think?

New problem:

Hi;

A student is taking 4 courses and there is to be a test in each course next week (Monday to Friday). What is the probability that there will be at least two tests on the same day?

A says) 106 / 125

B says) 65 / 70

C says)100!, I ran a simulation.

D says) C's answer looks right...

E says) I like B's answer but am not sure. He made a few assumptions.

What answer do you like?

"Data! Data! Data!" he cried impatiently. "I can't make bricks without clay."

I think you are talking about SE. I saw some of bobbym's answers there a few weeks ago and am surprised most of them only have 1-2 upvotes!

Re: What do you think?

I am glad in a way. It is much easier to function when no one knows who you are.

Hi bobbym,

Hi ShivamS,

Yeah, some very good problems get lost in the flood of problems there!
