Re: So this is what was happeninggAr's series question. My question is 35 / 18. 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. #127 20120714 07:26:12
Re: So this is what was happeningWhat is the exact question?

Re: So this is what was happeninggAr's series can be stated in words. Take two lists of equal lengths of the throw of a single die. Add all the elements inthe first list to get s1. Then add all the elements in the second list to get s2. Now get the absolute value of s1 s2. 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. #129 20120714 07:35:42

Re: So this is what was happeningHe is not asking for the average difference, but for the expected sum.

Re: So this is what was happeningWell, if the average difference is 35/18, then wouldn't it be logical that the average sum of those would be 123456787654321?

Re: So this is what was happeningNo one said that the lists were 123456787654321 long. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

Re: So this is what was happeningIf we throw the dice n times the answer will be n*35/18.

Re: So this is what was happening35 /18 has no relationship to this problem. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

Re: So this is what was happeningDon't you just love when people dig up posts from months ago and expect someone else to remember it... 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: So this is what was happeningWell, If I see this mystery poster he is barred for life or even longer. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

Re: So this is what was happeningTrue enough but there are other ways to deal with them. I am pretty much sure it is one juvenile imbecile who is entertaining himself.

Re: So this is what was happeningNo, you did the right thing. I prefer the action of stopping them immediately. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.
