Pick Random NumbersGet two random numbers between 0 and 1. Subtract the smaller from the bigger. What is the probability that the result is <0.3? Is it greater than the probability to be > or equal to 0.3? #2 20130730 04:14:58
Re: Pick Random NumbersHi;
I am not understanding you here, the P(≥.3) = .49 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 20130802 02:22:58
