 >> Anonymous Mon Feb 12 10:10:42 2024 No.16023215 >>16022741I'll put it simply, this question cannot be answered with any mathematical certainty, because if any individual human in the world, all the billions of them, you cannot calculate the chance of any ball being drawn to a guaranteed number. The question is moot because all will draw different at chance according to their unique decision, which cannot ever be calculated. It's a trick question, based on absolute chance of a humans will. You're right. It's impossible
 >> Anonymous Mon Feb 12 10:20:37 2024 No.16023224 >>16023215What I'm saying is you can factor in the chance of one human being tasked with picking another golden ball, at arbitrary chance.

In fact, a coin is G G, another is S S, another is G S. You ignore the toss when S appears on the front face, if G comes up, take note of the back face, writing for example 1 if G, 0 if S. With 100 results you have a percentage, I got 70%.

 >> Anonymous Tue Feb 13 09:30:35 2024 No.16024545 >>16024259it can be simplified further by using a die. since the choice of boxes is random, we could consider a box the values of the opposite faces: 1-6, 2-5, 3-4. We could consider the first box 1-6 with both balls of gold, the second box 2-5 gold-silver, the third box 3-4 silver-silver. So when the value 1 or 6 comes out I consider finding the gold ball, when the value 2 comes out I know the opposite face is 5 and I consider it silver. when 5 comes out, 3-4 I ignore them because it is silver. at this point there is no need to do tests because the values I am interested in are 1-6 for gold and 2 for silver and the proportions are already done.

You should see the portal A vs. B threads that have been going for almost a decade and a half. Also, if you really think about what you're implying, what's the point? I can get individual trolls being cunts, but a concerted effort to spread nihilism backed by advanced technology?

 >> Anonymous Sat Feb 17 03:19:42 2024 No.16029899 >>16029605actually thinking about it more, I think 1/2 is still the correct ratio but I derived it wrong. It's not that there's 3/6 balls, it's that there's 1/3 chance of choosing the 100% gold box, 1/3 chance of choosing 50% gold, 1/3 of choosing 0% gold. So 1/3+1/6=1/2. If you added a gold ball at random it turns into:1/3 chance of box 1 (always gold even if the new ball was put there)1/3 chance of box 2 (2/3 chance of being 1/2 gold, 1/3 chance of being 2/3 gold if the new ball is there)1/3 chance of box 3 (2/3 chance of 0 gold, 1/3 chance of 1/3 gold)So the chance would be 1/3+1/3(2/3*1/2+1/3*2/3) + 1/3(1/3*1/3) = 5/9. Thanks for pointing that out.>>16029802If you repeat my math with 100 more silver boxes, you see I still get the same answer of 2/3. The problem you and >>16029848 are having is that you're ignoring information. It's true that you know you picked one of the boxes with gold balls in it, so you're choosing between box 1 and 2. But if you stop here and just say "only two boxes are possible, it's 50/50", you're ignoring the information you have that box 1 has more gold balls in it than box 2. Imagine that box 1 had 1,000,000 gold balls, box 2 had 1 gold ball and 999,999 silver balls, and box 3 had 1,000,000 silver balls. If you drew a gold ball, you'd still narrow it down to two boxes, but it's much more likely that you picked some random ball from the all-gold box than getting the one-in-a-million chance to get a gold ball from the mostly-silver box. The same idea applies to the original problem, just with less extreme numbers.

If you do this 6,000,000 times, then:You pick box A ~2,000,000 times and get a gold ballYou pick box B ~2,000,000 times and get a gold ball 1,000,000 times (that is half the amount of times as box A, for those keeping track at home!)You pick box C ~2,000,000 times and get no goldIt is precisely because there is no special influence that is causing you get gold every time that you can conclude that gold is more likely to come from box A. If, on the other hand, your hand was magically guided to a gold ball by forces beyond your understanding, then you might have a case for 50-50. Get it? You don't pick Box A more often. But you WILL HAVE PICKED box A more often if we're only looking at the times where you got gold on your random first pick.

Get it?That's what I've been telling you, it's a 50/50 that it's either a gold ball or a silver ball, since there are only two boxes you can choose and the gold ball is removed from either one automatically, that only leaves one other choice in your box, either a gold one or a silver one, there is no scenario in the question where you pick the box with the silver balls, the question doesn't ask anything about the silver balls besides the only one in the box next to the golden one

 >> Anonymous Sun Feb 18 20:55:43 2024 No.16032554 >>16032539Right, and we're back to the reason it's so incredibly ironic for you to be calling anyone illiterate: you've blatantly misunderstood what is being asked here. The OP actually explicitly specifies that your first pick is random from among three boxes, and the result thus randomly produced happens to be, by mere chance, a gold ball. And that exact outcome is the result of picking the all-gold box two times out of three. In case you're not sure how the numbers work out, that's not because there's three boxes. It's because you get ~3,000,000 gold balls and 2,000,000 are from Box A.Also, regarding Box C: yes, we know we can disregard it because we picked gold. So you see how picking a gold ball actually does give you information about the contents of the box you picked? Even more than you realise. >>16032549>it doesn't matter which ball you pick from the all gold box, it's gonna be gold either wayYes, compared to the other box, which is not gold either way. So there was another way it could have gone, which would not have given you gold. Which had an equal chance of happening. So you see, "gold either way" is actually twice as much as "gold half the time".

That's just how it happens randomly. If you knew the contents of the box, THEN you could choose gold every time for your first pick, see? But the OP explictly says that's not the case. So you misinterpreted it. Clearly. It tells you exactly how you came to be in this situation, and that was by randomly picking a ball from a random box without being able to see inside. Again, we have two possibilities, it's either one or the other. But one is twice as likely. Do you know how Monty Hall works, incidentally?

 >> Anonymous Sun Feb 18 21:18:11 2024 No.16032593 >>16032581Yes, you're listing all the reasons it's 2/3. Each box is equally likely to be picked. Each ball is equally likely to be picked. And that is why, when you see that you've picked a gold ball, it is more likely to have come from the box that is more likely to give you gold when you pick it. That's pretty much a tautology isn't it?

I pick one at random and roll it ten times. I get 6, 11, 13, 8, 9, 17, 20, 20, 14, 3. Which one do you think it probably was that I took?

What does that tell you?You're not being consistent here by the way because you already admitted that we can exclude the all-silver box after getting gold but now you won't even allow us to exclude the d6 after rolling 11?

 >> Anonymous Sun Feb 18 23:26:01 2024 No.16032811 >>16032734I'm gonna call it a night but, just to be perfectly clear, you are now saying that, after you drew a gold ball from a random box that you had 1/3 chance of selecting among a total of three boxes, the odds that you selected the all-silver box have remained entirely unchanged? Because if you are, that's clearly fucking stupid. But if you aren't, then you have to admit that you have to update your probabilities after you've obtained a result and learnt something about the contents of the box, and you can answer my question about the dice as well >>16032606.

If you pick G_3 initially, the other ball is silver. So out of G_1, G_2, and G_3 as your initial ball pick (which is the condition that the problem states), 2/3 of them will lead to you picking up another gold ball. this is not fucking hard you retards

Increase the number of gold balls in the first box and the chance remains the same, picking either of them doesn't matter, what matters is the relative proportion of gold inside each box. Make the third box be 50% gold, now what are the chances c the next pick is gold? c = 1/3*100% / (1/3*100% + 1/3*50% + 1/3*50%) = 1/3 / 2/3 = 50%Both midwits and brainlets owned
