Re: Probability: Tree Diagrams

Hi MathsIsFun;

This one is really nice! Very well done, I say box it and ship it ( order counts ), it is ready for mass production.


In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

I agree with you regarding the satisfaction and importance of actually computing some numbers. I can't tell you how often I see time and money wasted because someone didn't bother to run the numbers.

Neatly done!

That's how I start a probability problem. Ends all the confusion.
