Card Guessing System Red or Black.I have Devised a System for Guessing Cards Red or Black form a normal 52 Pack of Cards. #2 20110227 02:19:24
Re: Card Guessing System Red or Black.
That is incorrect. The game is not random, not if you are seeing the results. Are you seeing the results as you guess? You can keep making better and better guesses based on past information. 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 20110227 02:30:52

Re: Card Guessing System Red or Black.I got 33 right which is probably the average amount you should get. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

Re: Card Guessing System Red or Black.
What kind of a comment is that? 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 20110227 03:57:59
Re: Card Guessing System Red or Black.The Average Number of Guesses in The Game Has to be 26 Which is 50 % of All Possibilities from a Math point of View! #8 20110227 04:01:41
Re: Card Guessing System Red or Black.That is the average number when you are guessing, but you are not guessing, you know the composition of the remaining cards. Since you never read what I tell you, I said the average value of that game is about 33. That game is not random and that is easy to prove. 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. #9 20110227 04:09:25
Re: Card Guessing System Red or Black.The Start of the Game is 50 % Red and 50 % Black if you take one Red Card and then One Black Card it is still 50 % for Both! #10 20110227 04:12:58
Re: Card Guessing System Red or Black.Lets say after 44 cards are drawn I have 22 right just by guessing.So I will average 22 out of 44 just with guessing. Every once in a while the last 8 cards will be all red or all black. Now I am not guessing. I pick 8 reds or 8 blacks. I end up with 30. Do you see it now? 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.

Re: Card Guessing System Red or Black.Forget about Rubbish!! talk about Math Fact! after all you are a Moderator? Not once in a While 44 then 22 is 50 % not 63.46 % #12 20110227 04:20:45
Re: Card Guessing System Red or Black.I will try one more time. I have been giving you math fact. Lets say I pick black every time. I can not do worse than 26. But everytime the last card is red. I will have guessed my 26 with some cards left. They will all be red. Now I can never do worse than 26 but when the last few are red I will do better than 26. My average is higher than 26.

Re: Card Guessing System Red or Black.Do you know how to converse without sarcasm or invective? I am a person like you. Do you know how to behave? You have been warned about your behaviour. Please stick to math, comments like that are easily misunderstood. 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.

Re: Card Guessing System Red or Black.Then Answer! #16 20110227 04:56:21
Re: Card Guessing System Red or Black.I have, twice with what I think are really nice pieces of analysis. I am sorry that you will not meet me at least half way. I have tried everything I can. You cannot and should not call someone elses work rubbish.
Have you ever used the word please? 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. #17 20110227 18:12:50
Re: Card Guessing System Red or Black.If you adopt the simplest strategy of always guessing black then by post #10 and post #12 you will average more than 26 right. The exact calculation is: Although even the simplest strategy will average 27 right, there is a better strategy. 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.
