Re: Probability problem.

Hi anonimnystefy,



Hi bobbym,

Okay.

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.

Hi gAr

I am really starting to believe that 1) is pi-2.

Hi;

I do not think that is correct. It is too high.

Re: Probability problem.

It is not. It is equal to 1.141592... which is close to what I am getting with the code above.

You were right! I got 4/pi.

Re: Probability problem.

Hi bobbym,

I'm posting a screenshot to tell what I mean.

Hi anonimnystefy,

That is still more!
The answers have 1/pi times another fraction a/b, with a and b != 1

Logging out now, see you "tomorrow".

This is what I am doing so far:

Hi gAr;

Thanks and see you tomorrow!

Hi anonimnystefy;

You had an answer very close to that a while back.

Re: Probability problem.

Code:

Total[Table[2/Sqrt[1 + #^2] &[Tan[RandomReal[2 Pi]]], {1000000}]]/1000000

This is basically my code. It gives an answer close to 4/Pi.

Hi gAr;



Hi anonimnystefy:

If you set this problem up in geogebra where you can actually see what is occurring you will see that gAr is right.

Re: Probability problem.

Hi anonimnystefy,

I think you misunderstood the problem. P is a point inside the circle, and we need the average length of P to Q on the circumference.
