...no...dont make me...

...choose...I can't ...I suck at it...arrrgghhh!!!

I'm faced with two different scenarios ....in both though...i need to choose one thing over the other...

The old pros versus cons game doesnt work really well here...so it's driving me mad...I think i'm gonna toss a coin instead.... :S What is the probability that I'll get 3 heads if I flip an unbiased coin 8 times? hmm?

Song of the day: 'Fade' by A Sheep At The Wheel

Thought for the day: 18 days to go for Freakshow....and also...should I go for the Halloween Parade in the Village...or study?

Update: -
Scenario 1: choice has been made.
Scenario 2: choice was made yesterday but has led to nasty repurcussions...will reconsider.

Thanks ;-)

...oh...btw...

P(3 Heads) = (1/2)^3
= 1/8 or 0.125 for people who prefer decimals...

...which, can I just say...decimals are dumb, and fractions are fun...

Thankyou for this forum to voice myself. You may now carry on blogging... :-)

You dont like decimals?? Why not? I like both....fractions are easier to work with of course. Esp in equations when decimals can be a bitch.

Thanks for answering the probability question. I got asked that in an interview...so wanted to make sure I was thinking sane. :)

Ah...well done! :-)

You've nailed it right on the head. Fractions are much easier to manipulate manually than decimals are. Hence my aversion of decimals. I really would only use decimals when the context is appropriate.

For example, I wouldn't say that it will take Coolshades 22/8 seconds to decide whether to marry ElVez or Mike Jones (WHO?). I would say it will take her 2.75 seconds. Context... :-)
