What do the Royal Family and Probability math equations have in common?

They are not important and nobody cares about them.

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.

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!"

Some laws that we didn't learn at school


Once your hands become coated with grease, your nose will begin to itch.


Any tool, when dropped, will roll to the least accessible corner.

My classmate didn't study for our test in mathematics about probability.

"I'll take my chances", he said.

A mathematician is going through security check at an airport

When it’s his turn one officer suddenly starts jumping around exited and yells: “There is a bomb in this man luggage!” The mathematician is immediately arrested, searched and confined in a separate room. A while later authorities come in and ask him what the hell he was thinking, to which the mathem...

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.

What is the similarity between me and an experiment involving a biased coin with two tails?

The probability of getting a head is zero.

Probability theory

Probability theory is probably the least understood area by the general population (except for certain gamblers). As a simple example, consider the History Professor 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 re...

What has the probability of one in five million?

Blonde: But there's no 1 in 5000000. Only a five and six zeros.

I surveyed many people who had played Russian roulette

Seems like the probability of dying is actually 0%

Is your normal probability plot approximately linear?

Cause you can distribute your sample over me
