Little question (Probability)Hi, I need someone to help me make sense of something : Last edited by AlAllo (20130622 04:55:53) #2 20130622 05:04:26
Re: Little question (Probability)Hi;
At least one person hitting the target means 1, 2 or all 3. 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. #3 20130622 05:14:25
Re: Little question (Probability)AHHHHHHH.. Thank you. THe problem was, I wasn't sure that atleast one person would also mean all the three like you showed me(It didn't make sense that it would mean ONLY one person, this is why I asked the question about it). A vocabulary problem ? #4 20130622 05:18:17

Re: Little question (Probability)Also, would this be corrrect : #6 20130622 05:37:56
Re: Little question (Probability)You have .096 for all three that is correct. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

Re: Little question (Probability)I'm trying to get to 0 by substracting every probability. To be able to see in depth ^^ #8 20130622 05:40:36
Re: Little question (Probability)You want probability that only one hits and probability that just 2 hit? 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. #10 20130622 05:48:23
Re: Little question (Probability)Two person hitting is .32 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. #11 20130622 05:52:31
Re: Little question (Probability)Well, I got three of them #12 20130622 05:54:31
Re: Little question (Probability)Yes, you are correct? 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. #13 20130622 05:57:23
Re: Little question (Probability)Here's what I did : #14 20130622 06:16:25
Re: Little question (Probability)Is this the answer you were expecting? 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. #16 20130622 06:19:31
Re: Little question (Probability)Yes. That will make a good choice. 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. #17 20130622 06:21:27
Re: Little question (Probability)Well, I don't see what else it could be.... So... #18 20130622 06:24:51
Re: Little question (Probability)Okay, I thought you had the answer already. 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. #19 20130622 06:27:36
Re: Little question (Probability)Ah, no I don't, I only had to find the probability of atleast 1 person hitting the target. But would the 0,14 that only one person hits the target be good, would it be the answer you would have chosen ? Last edited by AlAllo (20130622 06:27:59) #20 20130622 06:31:32
Re: Little question (Probability)I got two different answers when I treed it. 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. #22 20130622 06:34:48
Re: Little question (Probability)For any 2 hitting the target .392 and for 1 hitting the target .428 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. #23 20130622 06:36:06
Re: Little question (Probability)Well, here's how I see it : #24 20130622 06:38:13
Re: Little question (Probability)
How did you get .392 ? Here's how I got for any two : 0,4 * 0,3= 0,12 or 0,4*0,8= 0,32 or 0,3*0,8=0,24 #25 20130622 06:43:18
Re: Little question (Probability)That is what you are doing wrong you are only firing two arrows for each one. But the problem fires 3 arrows! 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.
