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. #27 20130324 22:13:58
Re: probability question help meI am trying to understand the logic behind the terms that's all. #28 20130324 22:21:29
Re: probability question help meAll the forms there were obtained empirically. By looking at the data. There just was no other way that I could solve the problem,
That is the number of derangements which is always an integer. Your sum there is not always an integer. Last edited by bobbym (20130325 00:21:52) In mathematics, you don't understand things.
