Re: Probability problem.Hi; ElainaVW; 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 20130529 07:39:10

Re: Probability problem.Hello:) a,b,c,d are positive integers that are odd. There is a smallest fraction for that expression in the form where x and y are coprime and x / y is positive. What is x + y? Last edited by ElainaVW (20130613 22:52:09) #6 20130613 22:58:25

Re: Probability problem.With all "Probability posts on this Forum, none of the responses gives examples of explaining "Probability" in simplistic terms and in a manner that will allow kids to understand "Probability  Chance and Data"in a manner thatwills simplistic and easy to understand by kids to how can I do this? #11 20130715 22:41:00
Re: Probability problem.I would have to disagree with that. I think there are a number of people here who can explain almost anything math related or anything else in simple terms.

Re: Probability problem.
What about the 5x5 square problem?

Re: Probability problem.Hi;
If you mean for the solution, yes you did. I did not post it then because I wanted to give other people a chance to work on it. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
