Re: Bayes' theorem problemGot it, 'And fun? If maths is fun, then getting a tooth extraction is fun. A viral infection is fun. Rabies shots are fun.' 'God exists because Mathematics is consistent, and the devil exists because we cannot prove it' 'Who are you to judge everything?' Alokananda #27 20130407 01:03:38
Re: Bayes' theorem problemWhy do you say 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. #28 20130407 01:05:36
Re: Bayes' theorem problemBecause I don't see where you use it 'And fun? If maths is fun, then getting a tooth extraction is fun. A viral infection is fun. Rabies shots are fun.' 'God exists because Mathematics is consistent, and the devil exists because we cannot prove it' 'Who are you to judge everything?' Alokananda #29 20130407 01:08:37
Re: Bayes' theorem problemHi Agnishom, "Believe nothing, no matter where you read it, or who said it, no matter if I have said it, unless it agrees with your own reason and your own common sense"  Buddha? "Data! Data! Data!" he cried impatiently. "I can't make bricks without clay." #30 20130407 01:09:59
Re: Bayes' theorem problemThere is a formula that covers what he did, it is called the extended form of Bayes theorem. 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. #31 20130407 01:21:45
Re: Bayes' theorem problemI tried to match that too. 'And fun? If maths is fun, then getting a tooth extraction is fun. A viral infection is fun. Rabies shots are fun.' 'God exists because Mathematics is consistent, and the devil exists because we cannot prove it' 'Who are you to judge everything?' Alokananda #32 20130407 01:28:35
Re: Bayes' theorem problemWhat you wrote is the extended form: That has the form of his answer. That is what I was working on, trying to fill that in but I must have missed something. His use of the tree is better, it lends itself to computation better. 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. #33 20130407 01:38:10
Re: Bayes' theorem problemSurely thats better. 'And fun? If maths is fun, then getting a tooth extraction is fun. A viral infection is fun. Rabies shots are fun.' 'God exists because Mathematics is consistent, and the devil exists because we cannot prove it' 'Who are you to judge everything?' Alokananda #34 20130407 01:39:48
Re: Bayes' theorem problemI thought of something like: and we have "Believe nothing, no matter where you read it, or who said it, no matter if I have said it, unless it agrees with your own reason and your own common sense"  Buddha? "Data! Data! Data!" he cried impatiently. "I can't make bricks without clay." #35 20130407 01:41:11
Re: Bayes' theorem problemHi; then look at the formula: try replacing corresponding parts. I did not see gAr's answer until I posted. He got the solution so he is the guy to ask. 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. #36 20130407 01:57:29
Re: Bayes' theorem problemNow in that part, what does A and B stand for? 'And fun? If maths is fun, then getting a tooth extraction is fun. A viral infection is fun. Rabies shots are fun.' 'God exists because Mathematics is consistent, and the devil exists because we cannot prove it' 'Who are you to judge everything?' Alokananda #37 20130407 02:01:10
Re: Bayes' theorem problemHi Agnishom; 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. #38 20130407 02:04:45
Re: Bayes' theorem problemOkay, I am contended with the tree anyway. Next time I will think of one 'And fun? If maths is fun, then getting a tooth extraction is fun. A viral infection is fun. Rabies shots are fun.' 'God exists because Mathematics is consistent, and the devil exists because we cannot prove it' 'Who are you to judge everything?' Alokananda #39 20130407 02:06:19
Re: Bayes' theorem problem
Yes, yes, it seems more clear but how does it fit into the formula? Last edited by Agnishom (20130407 02:07:09) 'And fun? If maths is fun, then getting a tooth extraction is fun.

Re: Bayes' theorem problemHi, You can plug in the values now.. "Believe nothing, no matter where you read it, or who said it, no matter if I have said it, unless it agrees with your own reason and your own common sense"  Buddha? "Data! Data! Data!" he cried impatiently. "I can't make bricks without clay." #41 20130407 02:24:22
Re: Bayes' theorem problemOkay! Thanks 'And fun? If maths is fun, then getting a tooth extraction is fun. A viral infection is fun. Rabies shots are fun.'
