Geometric probabilityWhat is the probability a random quadrangle to be inscribed (described) in a circle? IPBLE: Increasing Performance By Lowering Expectations. #2 20060611 12:38:38
Re: Geometric probabilitythe sum of their facing angles to be 180°? X'(yXβ)=0 #3 20060611 14:33:14
Re: Geometric probabilityAn infinitesimal value. That is, if you define R^2 as the universal set and a circle of finite size. "In the real world, this would be a problem. But in mathematics, we can just define a place where this problem doesn't exist. So we'll go ahead and do that now..." #4 20060614 02:16:40
Re: Geometric probability
I THOUGHT THE SAME THING!!! IPBLE: Increasing Performance By Lowering Expectations. #5 20060614 03:54:16
Re: Geometric probability
well i dont know what you said, but yeh, the chances of just one point being inside the circle is infintisamely small, since the point can be anywhere in infinate space The Beginning Of All Things To End. The End Of All Things To Come. #6 20060614 19:34:48
