Re: Bafflers?

Hi bobbym

I managed to type it up on my phone, but I'm afraid that's all I can do for now except explain it a little latex-free.

Hi;

In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
Probability is the most important concept in modern science, especially as nobody has the slightest notion what it means.
90% of mathematicians do not understand 90% of currently published mathematics.

Re: Bafflers?

Thanks, but it's not much yet.Could you give me some easier problems I could work on to practise my GF knowledge.A link would be just fine.

Aren't there more problems that are done using GF's?

Re: Bafflers?

Yes, but GF's are like everything else in mathematics, very iffy. The technique you used will not always work. Sometimes you can not get the recurrence or even a sequence of numbers.

Re: Bafflers?

Baffler #3

There are ten marbles in an urn. 3 red, 4 black and 3 blue. If the marbles are drawn from the urn and laid on a table in the order they were drawn what is the chance that all 3 types are together. Meaning the 3 reds are together, the 3 blue are together and the 4 blacks are together.

ok,then.

also,i'm now looking at the way of solving the problem you just posted using GF's.
