Re: Fantasy League Draft Lottery QuestionOf course, I changed post #49. 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. #52 20130503 09:05:42
Re: Fantasy League Draft Lottery QuestionIt still looks the same.

Re: Fantasy League Draft Lottery QuestionYou must have seen it after the edit... Code:p={300,250 ,175,100,75,50 ,25,15,7,3,1}; fubar[n_] := Module[{}, h = n/c; c = n; h] Some more initialization, pck is the draft pick. Code:pck = 5; s = Permutations[p, {pck}]; This is what runs. I pick 75 because it is 5th in p as the number of balls the fifth player gets. Code:ans = Select[s, #[[pck]] == 75 &]; Product[k, {k, #}] & /@ Table[c = 1001; fubar[#] & /@ ans[[k]], {k, 1, Length[ans]}] // Total In mathematics, you don't understand things.

Re: Fantasy League Draft Lottery QuestionI think I understand it. It is very, very messy, though.

Re: Fantasy League Draft Lottery QuestionWell, I do not know how efficient it is, but one thing is sure  it looks nasty.

Re: Fantasy League Draft Lottery QuestionYou are supposed to know. You cane up with it. But it was for a geometry problem, so I am not sure if it is applicable.
