Fantasy League Draft Lottery QuestionHello. #2 20130420 07:01:26
Re: Fantasy League Draft Lottery QuestionHi; 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 20130420 07:07:24
Re: Fantasy League Draft Lottery QuestionYeah that didn't post as legibly as I'd hoped. Here's the new ticket distribution, laied out as it was in the old post (hoping that's more clear): #4 20130420 07:14:52
Re: Fantasy League Draft Lottery QuestionAre the rules the same as the other thread? 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. #5 20130420 07:19:36
Re: Fantasy League Draft Lottery QuestionCorrect. Nothing but the number of picks (was 9, is now 11) and ticket distribution (as above) has changed. #6 20130420 07:24:17
Re: Fantasy League Draft Lottery QuestionOne more thing, math is newfangled to me so I really only believe in one thing. Did the calculations I provided work last time? 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. #7 20130420 07:36:48
Re: Fantasy League Draft Lottery QuestionYes, the calculations from your simulation last time worked perfectly. That's why I came back here #8 20130420 07:51:09
Re: Fantasy League Draft Lottery QuestionOkay, then I am going to do them the exact same way and hope for the best. I will post the answers 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. #9 20130420 08:00:46
Re: Fantasy League Draft Lottery QuestionSweet thanks so much #10 20130420 08:12:26

Re: Fantasy League Draft Lottery QuestionHere are the exact values for the second pick, I think, if I got the rules correctly:

Re: Fantasy League Draft Lottery QuestionIt appears to be gone. The link in post #2 is going nowhere. I did not touch it, so... In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

Re: Fantasy League Draft Lottery QuestionYes I have. 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. #20 20130503 04:57:14
Re: Fantasy League Draft Lottery QuestionIt looks very nasty. I haven't tried to get it for latter draws, because it would involve too many summations.

Re: Fantasy League Draft Lottery QuestionWe have a simpler answer which is good enough for current intents and purposes?

I was answering that with a question.

Re: Fantasy League Draft Lottery QuestionNot exactly, you stated:
I have not even seen the simpler summations you have done! 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.
