Re: Chance Simulator

New version (0.4).

Has a "Queue" box, and the connectors now have a "Pull" feature (click on shaded arrow at start of line to make it a "Pull" the value. This feature is very experimental!

Here is an example (calculation of Pi): http://www.mathsisfun.com/data/chance-s … 1~C_5_6_01

(Still very "beta" software)

Re: Chance Simulator

Hi MathsisFun;

What does the "So Far" box do?


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.

Sums up. It adds inputs to its current value.

Hi MIF;

Okay, thanks!

Re: Chance Simulator

I'm still getting over my  bad cold, but I'm trying to learn your pull thingys see??
What did I do wrong??  I don't even know what I am trying to do actually??

Re: Chance Simulator

Precisely .. "pulling" a value while "pushing" a value is a strange thing. I will have a look at your example.

Re: Chance Simulator

Ok ... small but nice improvement (v0.41) ... when you click "Once" it shows you the calculations in order.

John: You can now see that your top box (777) gets replaced with 444, then that 444 bets pulled to the bottom box, leaving 0.

Re: Chance Simulator

Thanks MIF, I'll revisit this creation after I finish memorizing the elements average masses to IUPAC standard 2010...

Re: Chance Simulator

Especially for me, my memory isn't my fort/e.
But I have persistence and multiple techniques,
so I'm making some progress.

Re: Chance Simulator

hi MathsIsFun,

Only just got round to looking at this (apologies).

I love it.  I've made a two dice simulator and posted it to my teaching colleagues.  They'll find it usable in the classroom and hopefully, it'll generate some new recruits!  smile

What is the reset button doing?  Could you make a screen re-set so you get a blank screen

and maybe list the shared links on the page so we can all see others creations.

Thanks.

Re: Chance Simulator

Hi Mathsisfun

I'm working on a school task/research concerning probability. We are working on casino games, mine is math. I don't know wether you know the rules of c.r.a.p.s, and how it works, but i've worked out the probabilities of winning and losing for the pass line and the don't pass line bets. I saw this calculator but I don't get it at all, and I was wondering wether you knew a way how to look at the chances of winning and losing at c.r.a.p.s with this simulator. Also, I have thought of an odds bet which could increase chances of winning with c.r.a.p.s.

Thanks

Pieter
