Hi;

About your exlanation of what you did. This will be good practice. As hard as it is to solve a problem it is harder to explain how.

Yes, I have seen that. Now we can discuss what you would like to do with it. The pros and cons.

I need a little more than that. You have to tell me, what it is you want to do. I can advise you a little but I do not want to sway you in any direction.

Well, I could send it to that guy. I have no idea what to do!

I would say you can email him at doctormatt at madandmoonly dot com. Explain that you have a general solution to #10. He will then instruct you.

But, do you think it's a good idea.

I have written the email down. You can delete if you think it's neccessary.

But, do you think it's a good idea.

If you check the latest pdf you will see my email name there under thanks. Therefore what right do I have to tell you not to? But publishing always comes with a little risk. I have had work stolen from me by some very well respected people.

The way to decide is to ask yourself what you want to do. I will be happy with whatever decision you make.

Okay. I'm emailing him. It's not much of a result to be stolen, anyway.

It hurts like crazy when it happens. I do not think he will do that though. So good luck.

Do not abandon me just yet. If he is interested in seeing the solution, should I point him to the other thread, or should I send him the solution in a pdf file?

Then do that when you hear from him. I will give you the simulation results I have and one or two more because he can understand that. You can include that in the pdf if you like.

When you do 4 of a kind, do you use the 6th row instead of the 5th row of the T's?

Hi bobbym,

You know how to fit a good distribution?

I was guessing it might be approximated by weibull distribution.

The plot of probabilities are right-skewed. I'm getting no better result even after spending much time on this!

Hi gAr;

I have not had much luck either. Your picture did not show.

We have transferred over to a new server. The move has caused some features to malfunction. Uploading a picture is not working, as well as some parts of latex.

Hi bobbym,

I had read about some troubles in other posts, yet I tried to check.

Anyway, the pic I was trying to post was point plots for face showing up thrice, and the weibull's plot for lambda = 7.9 and k = 3.6, which were close enough.

Hi;

How did you get that using a Weibull dist? I am using geogebra to look at the distribution.
