put X = number he gets right. the probability he gets any one right is the probability he gets one any one wrong is \[\frac{1}{2}\] to get six wrong in a row multiply \[(\frac{1}{2})^6\] to get one right and 5 wrong it is \[\dbinom{6}{1}(\frac{1}{2})^6\] \[\dbinom{6}{1}\] is the number of ways to choose on item from a set of 6, so it is 6
Thank you!!
\[(\frac{1}{2})^6=\frac{1}{64}\] \[6\times \frac{1}{64}=\frac{6}{64}\] \[\frac{1}{64}+\frac{6}{64}=\frac{7}{64}\] \[1-\frac{7}{64}=\frac{57}{64}\]

oops ignore the last line. just \[\frac{1}{64}+\frac{6}{64}=\frac{7}{64}\]
man i am off. you also have to compute the probability that he gets two right. forgot about that one.
it is \[\dbinom{6}{2}\frac{1}{64}\] and \[\dbinom{6}{2}=15\]
so the correct answer is \[\frac{1}{64}+\frac{6}{64}+\frac{15}{64}=\frac{22}{64}\]
sorry my mistake. not reading carefully.
its okay! thank you! i got the answer correct :)
great!
are you good with pascal's triangle and other probabilities?
sure got a question?
lets see...what is the probability of getting 3 red lights at a traffic stop, when looking at five lights. assuming the common changes are red and green
assuming these probabilities are each \[{1}{2}\ for each light and assuming they are independent?
yeahh
a rather broad assumption. so this is like saying if you flip a coin 5 times what is the probability you get 3 heads and one tail, yes?
oh yeah, you could actually put it that way!
then it is just \[\dbinom{5}{3}(\frac{1}{2})^5\]
\[(\frac{1}{2})^5=\frac{1}{32}\] do you know how to compute \[\dbinom{5}{3}\]?
no? haha i am not very great with math
do you know how to write the first few levels of pascal's triangle?
yeah i know how to do that
1 1 1 1 2 1 1 3 3 1 1 4 6 4 1 1 5 10 10 5 1
there it is down to level 5 to compute each entry start at 1, then add the top two adjacent numbers.
so to get the next level i would start at 1, then say 1+5=6 5+10=15 10+5=15 5+1=6 and so the next level would be 1 6 15 15 6 1
okay...got it!
but let us just say without writing the triangle i wanted to compute \[\dbinom{7}{3}\] the number of ways to choose 3 from 7. i would make a fraction and put in the top \[7\times 6\times 5\] in the bottom \[3\times 2\]tp get \[\frac{7\times 6 \times 5}{3\times 2}\] this has to be a whole number so cancel before multiplying.
\[\frac{7\times 6 \times 5}{3\times 2}=7\times 5=35\]
\[\dbinom{10}{4}=\frac{10\times 9 \times 8 \times 7}{4\times 3\times 2}\]
again a whole number so cancel first and multiply last.
\[\dbinom{10}{4}=10\times 3\times 7=210\]
oh wow, okay i get it a little better now
http://ptri1.tripod.com/
more than you want to know
okay i have another question that im having a hard time with
shoot
Suppose that you ask three friends to go to the mall. each one has a 0.80 chance of saying yes. What is the probability that all three friends will say they can go to the mall with you?
ok that one is easy. \[(.80)^3\]
assuming independence multiply the probabilities
oh so its 0.512
cool!
you got it.
wow thank you! are you good with the binomial theorem? haha
or with the Fibonacci Sequence?
