While testing a newly installed computer, an Army officer asked the machine to predict the probability of World War Three and promptly received a one-word answer: "Yes."
Annoyed at the lack of detail, the officer barked, "Yes, what?" Instantly the machine replied, "Yes, sir!"
What do the Royal Family and Probability math equations have in common?
They are not important and nobody cares about them.
scared of flying
A friend of mine who was scared of flying and asked me one day: "What is the probability that there will be a bomb on an airplane?" I responded that I really didn't know, but that it was certainly less than one in a million. So he asked: "Well, what is the probability that there are two bombs on ...
My house was raided and the cops carted off books on algebra, trigonometry and calculus, plus dice and other probability-demo stuff.
They said it was weapons of math instruction.
The great ancient Indian mathematician, Aryabhatta, asked his wife: "Will you let me go out alone & enjoy myself with my friends over every weekend, every month?"
Wife: "What is the probability of me saying yes as per your calculation ?" That's when Aryabhatta discovered zero!!!
My classmate didn't study for our test in mathematics about probability.
"I'll take my chances", he said.
Controlling probability is the best super power
And I think there's a big chance that you'll agree
In my final semester of university, I had one final math class to pass: Probability and Statistics.
For those of you that don't know, and don't have to, I am envious.
In that class, we very often had to calculate the sums of many averages.
I just wanted to pass!
So to me, I summed it up as the means to an end.
