 There are 25 horses. Each time you can race 5 horses together. Now you need to pick the top three horses among them. How many races do you need to conduct? 13 Antworten7 times.after the 5th race the top five will be established; so, after the 6th the top three could be established. Answer is 6.doesn't that assume that 1st in one race is faster than 2nd/3rd/4th/5th in all the other races? can we be sure of that? 1st round: 25 horses and 5 heats => drop bottom 2 in each race 2nd round: 15 horses and 3 heats => drop bottom 2 again 3rd round: 9 horses and 2 heats => drop bottom 2 from large heat and 1 from the other 4th round: 6 horses and 2 heats; first heat has 5 and drop bottom 2 then race again with the 6th horse included 12 heats in total but there's probably a more efficient wayMehr Antworten anzeigenI think it is 7. Kannp, the top five are not established after 5 because the second in one race might be better than the first in another race. Have five races of five each and keep the top 3 in each races. Then, take each of the winners and race them against eachother. The two bottom and the 4 who lost to them are discarded. The two who lost to third place is discarded. And, the one who got 3rd in the race with the horse who gets second in the 6th race is discarded. Now, there are six horses left. Race all but the horse who won twice and keep the top two, combined with the horse who sat out. Now you are done in 7 races.you're over thinking this...... run 5 heats with 5 horses in each one. Using a stopwatch, you take the 3 fastest........ but if you don't have a stop watch - anonymous is wrong... marty is right - anonymous you can't take the winner of each race, because you need the top 3. if a 2nd place from one race is faster than the other 4 winners, you don't have it right. 1st time thru 5 horses by 5 heats drop bottom 2 = 15 left 2nd time thru 5 horses by 3 heats drop bottom 2 = 9 left 3rd time thru one race with 5, other with 4. keep top 3 of each race = 6 left now run any 5 horses, keep top 3 and for last one, run remaining 4,drop last. 12 heats total71) 5 heats take the first 3 =15 horses left 2) run 3rd against each other, take the first, same thing for 2nd and for the 1st take the best 3 = 3 heats 5 left 3) final heat 9 totalHe gave a very good explanation. I'll decline to explain why prm is incredibly wrong.7 is correct in assumption that each round ends up with a clear 1-st, 2-nd and 3-rd places. If horses can come simultaneously - than we need 11 rounds (When we have 9 horses left - we set up a round for first 5 and set up a round for the last 4 and a horse that took 3-rd place in the previous round. This leaves us 5 horses to race in the final 11th round).I got stuck with his explanation but once I understood it, it seems very brilliant. Let me put it in this way: 5 groups, each of 5 horses -> race (heat) take the 1st from each group and race (semi-final) discard the 4th and 5th one and all other horses which lost to them in the heat race keep the 3rd one but discard all horses lost to it in the heat race keep the 2nd one but discard the 3,4,5-th horses who raced against it in the heat race keep the 1st one but discard the 4,5-th horses who raced against it in the heat race Now there are 6 horses, namely the 1st from semi-final and the two just following him in heat the 2nd from semi-final and the one just following him in heat the 3rd from semi-final the 1st from semi-final is champion. ignore it and race all other 5 horses in final so 7 in total definitely Russ considers more cases but I am not interested in making it too complicatedHey guys, revicing the things here. Can you guys be more explicit on the 7 figure ? Even with the explainations it’s not clear for me. You say run the 5 winners of the 1st round and discard the last 2, but what if the 5 winners of the first round are actually the 5 firsts ?Forget it I read with my eyes closed, I was lookin for top 5 and it’s top 3 Einer oder mehrere Kommentare wurden entfernt.

 Toss a fair coin between two people. If it end with HHT, A wins the game. If it ends with HTT, B wins the game. Whats the probability of A wining the game. 9 Antworten2/3if order isn't important, than you have for possible outcomes. HHH, TTT, HTT, TTH. You can see immediately there's 1 chance out of 4 for A to win. If order is important, there are 8 possibilities. 1 chance out of 8 for A to win.1/4 srsly? http://www.glassdoor.com/Interview/Flip-a-coin-until-either-HHT-or-HTT-appears-Is-one-more-likely-to-appear-first-If-so-which-one-and-with-what-probabili-QTN_46824.htmMehr Antworten anzeigenOnce the second person flips their first H, they cannot ever go back to the state where they must roll an H to move on. So after P1 and P2 have both flipped their first H, P2 needs 2 flips to go his way, P1 needs 3, thus has half of the probabilty of A to win.Prob(HHT) * 0.5 = Prob(HTT), Prob(HHT) + Prob(HTT) = 1, ===> Prob(HHT)=2/3Pa=2/3, Pb=1/3Pa = 3/8Let p be the probability player 1 wins. Nothing matters until you roll a H, so let's fast forward to there. If another H is rolled, then player 1 wins automatically so that's (1/2). If a T is rolled, then if T rolls again you lose but if H rolls now then you reset to the past situation. So p = 1/2 + 1/4p so p = 2/3.Clearly A has the upper hand, because A retart from 2 if 3 fails, but B restarts from 1 if 3 fails

 If you have four coins and I have four. We both throw the four and if your four sides equal to mine, I will give you 2 dollar and otherwise you give me 1. Will you do it?4 AntwortenThe answer is no, as the expected value of the game is (1/256 + 1/16 + 9/64 + 1/16 + 1/256) * 2 - (1 - (1/256 + 1/16 + 9/64 + 1/16 + 1/256)) = -1/40 0.0625 0.0625 0.9375 -0.8125 -0.05078125 1 0.25 0.25 0.75 -0.25 -0.0625 2 0.375 0.375 0.625 0.125 0.046875 3 0.25 0.25 0.75 -0.25 -0.0625 4 0.0625 0.0625 0.9375 -0.8125 -0.05078125 Roll P(Roll) P(WIN|Roll) P(LOSE|Roll) Expected Gain Given Roll Expected Gain Expected Return: -0.1796875In this game of you four tosses, there are five possible combination {HHHH, HHHT, HHTT, HTTT, TTTT}. The probability of my four tosses matching any particular combination is 1 out of 5 (20%). So you shouldn't engage in any bet unless there's atleast a 5-for-1 payout. In the question there's only a 2-for-1 payout so you shouldn't engage in the bet.Mehr Antworten anzeigenoutput probability 0000 (1) --> 1/16 0001 (4) --> 1/4 0011 (6) --> 3/8 0111 (4) --> 1/4 1111 (1) --> 1/16 \sum \sqr{prob} = 2 / 16 / 16 + 2 / 16 + 9 / 64 = 1/128+1/8+9/64 = 0.27 (+2 dollars) < 1/3 so No.

 a asymmetrical dice with 12 faces, 40% to be 12, others are equivalent. two people, choose a number. The man whose number is closer to the result will win. which number should you choose.5 AntwortenThe expected value of the dice roll is 8.4 So you should choose 8I disagree. Expectation tells us nothing as the value on the dice is only relevant in that it provides an ordering, you could label the dice a,b,c,... in this order and the problem is unchanged. We seek the number, n, such that the probability of you winning with n is greater than winning with n+1 or n-1. Intuition indicates we ought to be looking around 10. So P(winning with 10 | opponent picks 11)=P(score is less than 11)=3/5*10/11=30/55>1/2 P(winning with 10 | opponent picks 9)=P(score is greater than 9)=3/5*2/11+2/5=28/55>1/2 So we pick 10.I think there is an error in the problem (probably it hasn't been reported correctly). If 40% of the 12 faces have the value "12" written on them it means there are 12*40/100=4.8 faces of the die with such value. This is not an integer value, hence the die is not a realistic. Can you please check?Mehr Antworten anzeigenit is a correct quation. these qustion are commom in mathematic. you just have to roun downTo the two above me: no, only one face has a 12, but the dice is such that this face comes up 40% of the time

 We play a game. Let’s guess the sum of two dices. Who make a guess that is closer to the outcome is the winner. What’s your strategy?5 AntwortenI choose 7 because if you pick say 6, the closest digit with lower value than 7 (meaning greater range of winning numbers), I get from [7,12], but you only get from [2,6]. And if I choose 7 and you choose say 8, the closest digit with higher value than 8, I get from [2,7], but you only get from [8,12]. Therefore, if I pick 7 I always have a greater chance of being closer to the correct number.the EV of rolling a dice is 3.5, so if you roll a dice twice the number with a greater chance is 7I have you pick first and bet one step closer to 7 . eg you say 4 I say 5, unless you say 7 then I say 7.Mehr Antworten anzeigenBen's answer was what I came up. But Pierreou's one is an even better strategy.Pierreou's answer assumes that your opponent does not have the concept of expectation. It is so easy to win if your opponent is ignorant......So I suggest you take the initiative to bet a guess on 7 then the probability of winning is >=6/11 no matter what your opponent's guess is

 You and I play a game, we roll two dice and both pick a number before rolling them. The one closer to the sum wins. The distribution is non-uniform, with 40 % chance of getting a sum of 12 and a uniform distribution for all the other numbers. What is your strategy? Go first or second?4 AntwortenWeither you choose a number or another, a risk-averse strategy would imply to maximise the probability of a win from both sides For example: if you choose a number a, your opponent will choose a number b that could be either below or above a if b = a since there is 40% of chance of getting a sum of 12 and a uniform distribution for all others numbers, it means that the cumulate probability of getting a number between 2 and 11 is 60% which means that P(win) = 40% + 60% * (12-a)/10 if b>a the same reasoning gives: P(win) = 60%*a/10 When you equal both relations above, you find a = 9.3 which means that you might bet 9 or 10 (I would go for 9 but I can't explain precisely why, it's just an intuition)You go first and pick 10. Since sums 2-11 are uniformly distributed, each of those has a probability of 0.06. So, if your opponent picks 11, you have 6 * 9 = 54% chance of winning. If he picks a 9, you have 6*2 + 40 = 52% chance of winning, ie. you are in a better position no matter what your opponents picks.Don't agree to the one above, if I pick 10, my opponent will do better by picking 11, as the sum is heavily skewed towards 12, if you do some calculation, the expected winning for my opponent is 5.46 when picking 11, and my expected winning will only be 3.24. For this question, no matter what I pick (x), my opponent will always choose to pick x+1 over x-1, as the EV for x+1 is higher, only when I pick 12, my opponent will pick 11 instead, and will definitely lose to meMehr Antworten anzeigenThe solution above interprets the question as "winning a profit that equals the result of the dice roll"
