Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so we have 4 words, and 3 endings. right? each word can be made 3 times; sadness, sadder, sadly... you do that 4 times and you get 12 words. theres a "tree" you can form" but Id have to go to paint to do it...

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0a coin is tossed, and a letter is chosen from a bag . The letters in the bag are X, P, Z, K, M, A, E, Y 11. How many outcomes are possible? 12. Find P(heads, E). 13. What is the probability of tails and P, Z, or M?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the coin is jsut an additional "variable" in it.... you start with the coin toss, which is 50% chance of getting heads or tails right?

amistre64

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ther are 2 outcomes from the coin toss, and 8 outcomes from the letters in the bag right? 16 outcomes total correct?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0P(heads,E) I would assume means (100/2,100/16) sure run it by me..

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.050% and 100/8 actually... 12.5% P(50%,12.5%)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0how did you get 100 over 8

amistre64

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I dont quite understand the notation P(heads,E) but to me it would mean that there is a 1 in 2 chance of getting heads: 100/2 = 50% and a 1 in 8 chance of getting an "E"; 100/8 = 12.5%

amistre64

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0100 is just the "percent" number.... I use it to adjust for the "chances" into an actual percentage

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Believe it or not I do well in math but this probability stuff is confusing to me

amistre64

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0when 2 things happen without a cause, they are independant of each other. The snow falling in alaska and my shoe coming untied in NewYork are not related, they are independant of each other. the opposite of that is events that occur because of the other. like: The light was off, I stubbed my toe.
