1. For prospective new members, a word of warning: don't use common names like Dennis, Simon, or Kenny if you decide to create an account. Spammers have used them all before you and gotten those names flagged in the anti-spam databases. Your account registration will be rejected because of it.
    Dismiss Notice
  2. Since it has happened MULTIPLE times now, I want to be very clear about this. You do not get to abandon an account and create a new one. You do not get to pass an account to someone else and create a new one. If you do so anyway, you will be banned for creating sockpuppets.

  5. A small reminder that our moderators can't change usernames. You need to directly contact an admin for that, and tehelgee is the jobless one so bug him about it.

  6. To the many new members following Mr Zoat to our forum, I would suggest a quick read of our Rules. Don't worry, it's not a long post. Pay special attention to Rule 8. We are deadly serious about it.

    Each success is an independent probability, so x successes would be p^x where p is prob of success on a single die? At least in the ideal case that holds. Where one success is on one die.

    I got directed to a good binomial equation calculator for it. Thanks though.

    How deep into statistics (and permutations / combinatorics) do you want to go?

    Look, I just got out of an inferential statistics quiz. I'm already far deeper into statistics than I want to be.
    Even if it were predictive statistics.

    That's kinda cool. Like it's sometimes pretty hard to know how much math someone has.

    Admittedly, not especially advanced inferential statistics, I imagine.
    Still, underestimate my numbersmithing and you've got ANOVA thing coming. /shittystatpun
