    Probability math? I don’t think it’s that easy.

    Always look for the key words in true/false tests.

    @margueritem

    That he didn’t even bother to study? Of course it’s no surprise. Calvin never does anything that requires any more effort than flipping a coin.

    You know, if you just skip the question, you’re guaranteed to get it wrong. Calvin’s probably got about a 50/50 chance this way even without having a clue, which is why T/F tests aren’t really very good.

    @Akame

    Calvin’s always had a strong improbability drive.

    @dukedoug: Very good. Here are some additional thoughts on this crucial subject.

    The coin-toss method assumes that the teacher created a true/false test with half of the answers true and the other half false. The method falls apart if most of the correct answers are true or most are false.

    Also, the longer the true/false test, the more likely that the coin-toss method will deliver a 50/50 result for the questions with unknown answers. In the case of a short true/false test, there is a better chance that you will be very lucky or very unlucky.

    On the other hand, the longer the true/false test, the more likely it is that the teacher will see you flipping the coin and take it away from you.

    A safer method is to mark the first half of the unknown answers “true” and the second half “false.”

    Or………. wait a minute……….. should you mark the first half “false” and the second half “true”……………?

    Come to think of it, it’s possible that Calvin is taking a math test on the subject of probability, and in the last panel he’s researching the answer!
























    Nah.
