Re: Probability density questionHi; 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. #3 20121021 10:22:42
Re: Probability density questionWhat is the formula for getting 8/3? #4 20121021 10:26:10
Re: Probability density questionI did it this way: 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. #5 20121021 10:42:39
Re: Probability density questionI'm not quite understanding it. The value of x = 0, 1, 2, 3, 4? #6 20121021 10:45:31
Re: Probability density questionNope, the value of x is those and everything in between them. This is a continuous function. 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. #7 20121021 10:51:38
Re: Probability density questionHow does it come up to 8/3? (Sorry for the dumb questions) #8 20121021 10:59:42

Re: Probability density questionAh, thank you. I was overthinking it. #10 20121021 11:15:59
