You may have wondered how much you’re going to use the things
you learned that were taught in the probability and statistics part of math class. Some people really liked the probability and statistics class. Other people really disliked the class. I was somewhere in the middle, somewhat more towards the like side of things.
Now that I am older and
wiser more experienced in life, I can tell you that you will use those concepts.
Because I have young active children, it’s always a race to fold the laundry before someone jumps or climbs on the bed and knocks over the piles of neatly folded clothes. Because of that, some things do not get folded.
Or even sorted…
Some Guy has 4 different sets of 3 pairs of socks each. If he just tosses all his 24 socks in a drawer without sorting them, what is the minimum number of socks he must grab each morning to ensure that he has at least one matching pair?
Assume there is no difference between left and right regarding the sock pairs.
Also assume the effects of friction are negligible.
Okay, pencils down. Trade papers with the person next to you and mark +10 points for the answer “5″ and 0 points for anything else.
Behold, you are wiser than Daniel; There is no secret that is a match for you.
