Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaPlease give me a serious answer. The limit operator is just an excuse for doing something you know you can't. “It's the subject that nobody knows anything about that we can all talk about!” ― Richard Feynman “Taking a new step, uttering a new word, is what people fear most.” ― Fyodor Dostoyevsky, Crime and Punishment #10102 20130415 02:17:08
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaI thought I did. The book stiffens up after the first two chapters. I can only get small pieces of it. There is some stuff in later chapters. 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. #10103 20130415 08:27:23
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaAnd the 3day streak is broken  nothing from adriana today. Perhaps she is just busy. #10104 20130415 08:35:52
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaOr she could be out there finding doctors who want to take blood from her. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 Formula
Hm, the third chapter will really bee a tough nut to crack. The limit operator is just an excuse for doing something you know you can't. “It's the subject that nobody knows anything about that we can all talk about!” ― Richard Feynman “Taking a new step, uttering a new word, is what people fear most.” ― Fyodor Dostoyevsky, Crime and Punishment #10107 20130415 08:41:58
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaYes an amazing accomplishment. 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. #10108 20130415 09:33:52#10109 20130415 09:34:58
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaIt would give her something to aspire to. 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. #10110 20130415 09:42:02
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaShe could be reading this thread, that's a scary thought. #10111 20130415 09:50:30
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaI would not worry about it. They love attention, good or bad really doesn't matter. 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. #10112 20130415 19:45:30
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaWho knows what she is doing now... So f(x) = 2x. The 4 currents are randomly distributed, so the expected number of currents in my portion is 4*(2/3) = 8/3. I can find the probability of taking more than half the cake (integrating the PDF between 1/2 and 1 gives 3/4), but not sure what to do about the 4 currants in my portion. It's a conditional probability so I'd also need to know how to find the probability of having 4 currants AND more than half the portion, and I don't know how to do that... #10113 20130415 20:38:39
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaHi; 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. #10114 20130415 20:39:55
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaThanks  what can I do about the second part? #10115 20130415 20:46:28

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaThat's how I feel about most questions in STEP III... #10117 20130415 21:01:56
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaThat is how I feel about math in general, I am checking some texts for a similar problem because I do not have one solved in my notes. 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: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaThanks  that's the one I've been struggling to understand too. I don't understand the x^4 thing... #10120 20130415 22:28:40
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaThey say that solution is correct later on but I do not get the X^4 either. 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. #10121 20130415 22:40:12
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaHe has said P(4 currants in a portion) = E(X^4)... not sure what to make of that. #10122 20130415 22:53:13

Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaHe is multiplying because I'm still not getting that g(X) = X^4 though... #10124 20130415 23:11:15
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaThis is what I meant:
Does that integral you posted apply here? 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. #10125 20130415 23:31:13
Re: Linear Interpolation FP1 FormulaI still can't understand why he did that. Everybody afterwards just says they agree with it, even though the original poster says he's not certain it's correct.
