Re: Generating FunctionsThat is why it should not be. They count permutations. 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. #227 20120504 04:48:39
Re: Generating FunctionsWait until later this evening or tomorrow,and we will discuss this properly. The limit operator is just an excuse for doing something you know you can't. “It's the subject that nobody knows anything about that we can all talk about!” ― Richard Feynman “Taking a new step, uttering a new word, is what people fear most.” ― Fyodor Dostoyevsky, Crime and Punishment #228 20120504 04:50:08
Re: Generating FunctionsNow you are talking turkey. Armed with your CAS you will be 100 times stronger. 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. #229 20120504 04:53:12
Re: Generating FunctionsOf course! I think I am starting to like Maxima.

Re: Generating FunctionsI am not getting 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. #232 20120504 06:05:18
Re: Generating FunctionsWhat do you get?

Re: Generating FunctionsFirst put an x = 1 into your expanded answer what do you get? 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. #234 20120504 06:08:34

Re: Generating FunctionsHmmm. Since that is a probability gf and each x powers coefficient is a probability. When you put x = 1 you are summing the gf. Since that is all the possibilities what should that sum be? 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: Generating FunctionsNot a good idea because you will not be able to turn that into a probability. 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. #238 20120504 06:17:35
Re: Generating FunctionsBut when I put x=1 I get all the possibilities amd the coeff of x**17 gives me the favorable cases.

Re: Generating FunctionsMaybe it does but what is a probability? 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. #240 20120504 06:23:36
Re: Generating FunctionsP=favorable/all possible.

Re: Generating FunctionsIt is a ratio. It is a fraction. Now I ask you what do you put on the bottom of your number to get that ratio? 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: Generating FunctionsAll possible outcomes?

Re: Generating Functions55986 / All possible outcomes 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. #244 20120504 06:31:52
Re: Generating FunctionsThat is the number I got too for the possible outcomes.

Re: Generating FunctionsHow did you compute this? 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. #246 20120504 06:36:55
Re: Generating FunctionsNo,I got the number 55986 to be down.

Re: Generating FunctionsThen what is on top? 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. #248 20120504 06:42:32

Re: Generating FunctionsThat is not correct. 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. #250 20120504 06:48:30
