When I came across this principle in Mark Alford’s tutorial paper on Bell Inequality I was intrigued:

In summer 2015, as happens most summers in the UK, a question from the GCSE Mathematics paper (for 16-year-olds) made it into the press for being “impossible”. 299 more words

As with every conditional probability problem, first thing is to mark the events:

Let event **A** be the man reports 6, and event… 146 more words

The law expresses the total probability of an outcome which can be realized via several distinct events. It says that if is a finite or countably infinite partition of a sample space (in other words, a set of pairwise disjoint events whose union is the entire sample space) then for any event… 7 more words

This is another one of those probability questions with answers that appear to be counterintuitive. The first thought is, of course, that in both cases the information is the same – one of the toss was a head – so the probabilities should be the same. 177 more words

This is a very popular question, and you will find a solution pretty much anywhere where people are talking about quant interviews. Unfortunately, most of the times, although the given solution is correct, the explanation is either not very clear or plain wrong. 536 more words

If we define an event that the coin is bad as **B**, and the event that any coin flipped ten times produces 10 heads as… 95 more words
