Re: Expected number of questions to win a gameHi gAr; 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. #27 20130405 01:04:56
Re: Expected number of questions to win a gameThere are some sequences which do not comment about the problems worked on! "Believe nothing, no matter where you read it, or who said it, no matter if I have said it, unless it agrees with your own reason and your own common sense"  Buddha? "Data! Data! Data!" he cried impatiently. "I can't make bricks without clay." #28 20130405 01:08:33
Re: Expected number of questions to win a gameThat site is very useful and it has saved me tons of work. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

Re: Expected number of questions to win a gameYes, saved me too! "Believe nothing, no matter where you read it, or who said it, no matter if I have said it, unless it agrees with your own reason and your own common sense"  Buddha? "Data! Data! Data!" he cried impatiently. "I can't make bricks without clay." #30 20130405 01:28:39
Re: Expected number of questions to win a gameHave you been working on anything? 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. #31 20130405 01:32:49
Re: Expected number of questions to win a gameNothing mathematical ..

Re: Expected number of questions to win a gameI have been pretty dull in my problem solving for the last 2 or 3 days. Maybe, I need some rest too. 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. #33 20130405 02:30:46
Re: Expected number of questions to win a gameHi, "Believe nothing, no matter where you read it, or who said it, no matter if I have said it, unless it agrees with your own reason and your own common sense"  Buddha? "Data! Data! Data!" he cried impatiently. "I can't make bricks without clay." #34 20130405 02:32:52
Re: Expected number of questions to win a gameLots of false steps and a bunch of errors. anonimnystefy has been sharp though! In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

Re: Expected number of questions to win a gameThat's okay, accidents happen.

Re: Expected number of questions to win a gameTrying out that rat run problem now.

Data!" he cried impatiently. "I can't make bricks without clay." #38 20130405 03:13:54
Re: Expected number of questions to win a gameYes, that was a fun problem and took a couple of people to do. There still maybe some errors in there. 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. #39 20130405 03:28:02
Re: Expected number of questions to win a gameI got 2/13 for part a as well.

Re: Expected number of questions to win a gameOkay, thanks for the confirmation. 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.
