100 percent’s pretty accurate, she’s in a comic strip.

3. ##### Night-Gaunt49[Bozo is Boffo]over 5 years ago

100% chance of being correct on that test question because she has lived it.

4. ##### Arbitraryover 5 years ago

Odds of a 60% or better would be about 37.7%, but now that Jason knows of the question it probably just fell to 0.

Sounds like her teacher’s onto her

6. ##### Tim Tjernlundover 5 years ago

I waited a week for this?

I was so focused on how to actually figure out the answer to the problem (and I still haven’t), that it took me a couple of minutes to understand that Jason’s answer is deliberately wrong.

That was still a failing grade in my H.S.

Schrodinger’s cat. You’ll never know the true answer until you work through the problem… Is Jason’s answer one of the right ones or 50% chance it’s wrong.

Probabilty?

12. ##### darth_geekboyover 5 years ago

it’s probably probable that a low probability will probably result from this highly improbable probability problem.

There is a Zero percent chance Mary Lou will get 60 percent of the questions correct. Her brother will answer 50 percent of them wrong, so she will get 50 percent of them correct.

It depends on how much she pays him, and if she’s smart enough to hold off payment until she gets the results.

Well, it was never my intention to do math on a comics website, but whatever. The total possibilities are 2^10 which is 1024. The numerator will be 10c6 + 10c7 + 10c8 + 10c9 + 10c10 = 386. 386/1024 simplifies to 193/512…

100 : 2 : 6 = 50 : 6 = 48, rest 2.
