A tricky problem to get you all thinking...OK, this might seem quite a random problem but please have a think about this... #2 20060119 13:54:37
Re: A tricky problem to get you all thinking...That doesn't quite compute. Doesn't probability only apply to random situations? Pi isn't random, and neither, I presume, are sudoku grids. I mean, that's like saying, "What is the probability that 2 + 2 = 4?" It's 1 of course; we know it will always come out a certain way. El que pega primero pega dos veces. #3 20060119 14:38:05
Re: A tricky problem to get you all thinking..."Pi isn't random, and neither, I presume, are sudoku grids." "In the real world, this would be a problem. But in mathematics, we can just define a place where this problem doesn't exist. So we'll go ahead and do that now..."
