Rolling Two Dice


When rolling two dice, distinguish between them in some way: a first one and second one, a left and a right, a red and a green, etc. Let (a,b) denote a possible outcome of rolling the two die, with a the number on the top of the first die and b the number on the top of the second die. Note that each of a and b can be any of the integers from 1 through 6. Here is a listing of all the joint possibilities for (a,b):

(1,1)(1,2)(1,3)(1,4)(1,5)(1,6)(2,1)(2,2)(2,3)(2,4)(2,5)(2,6)(3,1)(3,2)(3,3)(3,4)(3,5)(3,6)(4,1)(4,2)(4,3)(4,4)(4,5)(4,6)(5,1)(5,2)(5,3)(5,4)(5,5)(5,6)(6,1)(6,2)(6,3)(6,4)(6,5)(6,6)

Note that there are 36 possibilities for (a,b). This total number of possibilities can be obtained from the multiplication principle: there are 6 possibilities for a, and for each outcome for a, there are 6 possibilities for b. So, the total number of joint outcomes (a,b) is 6 times 6 which is 36. The set of all possible outcomes for (a,b) is called the sample space of this probability experi... show more

QUOTE OF THE DAY:


If consciousness changes waves of possibility into particles, then how could consciousness be some emergent property of a material universe?

Viewing Matrices and Probability as Graphs


Today I'd like to share an idea. It's a very simple idea. It's not fancy and it's certainly not new. In fact, I'm sure many of you have thought about it already. But if you haven't—and even if you…
