You are allowed to roll the dice five times. A friend tells you that the die used is biased such that even numbers are twice as likely to appear as odd numbers. Based on this information, what is the maximum amount you would pay to play this game?Interesting question but Id like to clarify your last statementHow much you be paid or how much you will payP(an odd number) = 1/9 based on the even number bias being double (1 + 2+ 1 + 2+ 1+ 2 =9 )P(rolling 5 odds straight) = (1/9^5)Expected value = 5^5 = 3125 which is the best u can getHowever there are combinations which mean u can get sth for less than 5 odd nosWhich will be the probability of 1 less all even numbersI leave it for more clarificationsAs the probs are endless and the expected value minute 1 Like Re: Nairaland Mathematics Clinic by 1stknight(m): 1:15pm On Jan 03, 2013 dabrake: that's something about mathematics. I believe people say 0/0 = undefined because it can give you any value. Take for instance.0/0 = (81 - 81)/(81 - 81) //81-81=0=[(9 + 9)(9 - 9)]/9(9 -9) // 81 - 81 = 92 - 92(law of difference of 2 squares)=(9 + 9)(9 - 9)/9(9 -9)=(9 + 9)/9= 2now saying 0/0 = 120/0 = (144-144)/(24-24) // 144-144 =0 ; 24-24 =0= (122-122)/2(12-12)= (12+12)(12-12)/2(12-12)= (12+12)/2= 12You see, you can always get any answer. Deceptive subjectBrother mathematics is not deceptive, because you can't get any constant value for a particular real number i.e a/b is what makes it UNDEFINED. Unlike 2/4=1/2, 0/0=undefined.

I studied pure maths in unilag and I must say that my life has been the better for it. For all those who have the passion for maths I encourage you to study it in school and learn to make your passion work for you. Maths forms the base of all science and engineering courses so it's very easy to convert to other professions. A lot of my colleagues work in banks, audit firms, marketing firms, oil and gas, telecoms, food and beverages etcI remember in 300 and final year I rarely used my calculator cos most of the courses we did were theoretical and used more of x, y and z rather than numbers. Then I was so sure Prof Olaleru was making up some of the stuff he taught us. So you can imagine how surprised I was to find all those pure maths principles embedded in stuff I do at work.What am just trying to tell you all who want to know if it's worth their time to study maths or stats the answer is yes, especially if your a natural guru. All the maths gurus in my class spent more time playing games than reading, in maths once u know it you know it and unless your ecturer na witch, there is no way he wants to set his questions that u will not answer it and get method mark. 8 Likes Re: Nairaland Mathematics Clinic by Mathano(m): 2:27pm On Jan 03, 2013 Mathano: My questn about d proof on integraldomain and fields is yet to be answered Re: Nairaland Mathematics Clinic by Truman155(m): 2:27pm On Jan 03, 2013 Krucifax: s=ut+0.5(a)t^2,s=t(u+0.5at),t=s/(u+0.5at),t^2=s/(U+0.5a), therefore t= sqrt of (s/(U+0.5a)) sir if u have t=sqrt of (s)/(u+0.5a) and u wanna make s the subject of the formular u wont get thd eqn of motion y 1 Like Re: Nairaland Mathematics Clinic by Tolzeal(m): 2:32pm On Jan 03, 2013 BrutusOj: Waoo..nice tread.my gurus in d house,kindly make t d subject of d formular in d expresion below" s=ut+1/2at^2" I.e d second equation of motion(s=ut+half atsquare).am waitin Thatx the solun at ma picx..jus us what popular kald almyty 4mula..andu gewd to go..i wil pwt ma fnal anx sn.. 1 Like Re: Nairaland Mathematics Clinic by biolabee(m): 2:34pm On Jan 03, 2013 truman u are a demon a + b + c = 8(a+b+c) ^2 = 64====> a2 + b2 + c2 + 2(ab+ac+bc) = 64====> hence ab+ac+bc = 48/2 = 24 ------------(1)(a+b+c)^3 = 512a3+b3+c3+ 3a(b2+c2+ + 3b(a2+c2) + 3c(a2+b2) + 6abc = 512I only need one more equation product of abcI don tire 1 Like Re: Nairaland Mathematics Clinic by ositadima1(m): 2:39pm On Jan 03, 2013 Truman155: If a+b+c=8, a^2+b^2+c^2=16 and a^3+ b^3+c^3=64 find a,b, and c.This question is funny, if we assume a, b, c to be whole numbers then question is wrong.
