 #10222 - 10/30/05 01:34 AM Re: IQ and Intelligence Philege Senior Member Registered: 12/30/04 Posts: 184 Loc: United Kingdom What about if one lady arrived at 1:00pm and the second at 1:01 and the third at 1:12, none would have to wait. Yes I did study probability theory, however I know that it is actually wrong! Top

 #10225 - 10/30/05 04:17 PM Re: IQ and Intelligence Philege Senior Member Registered: 12/30/04 Posts: 184 Loc: United Kingdom Because if you try to apply the theory to actual events you find it is way out. Do you agree that in a lottery where there are six balls out of forty-nine drawn according to the probability theory all have a one in 49 chance of coming. However after the first ball is drawn, it cannot come again, therefore the next probabilty becomes one in forty-eight, after the next one in forty-seven and so proceed ad infinitum. You even admitted when you worked on the three grannies that the probability changed if the grannies wanted to leave before 2 pm. That is the problem there are two many ifs and buts! How many theories have been challenged and proven wrong. One day you'll see many of these proved wrong. We humans tend to think that just because some High IQ individual works out something its has to be true. If we look a little deeper we might find that actually it is a load of crap. Top

 #10236 - 11/01/05 05:30 AM Re: IQ and Intelligence Senior Member Registered: 08/21/05 Posts: 127 Loc: does it really matter? "Some years ago the UN was running a competition where they wanted the result of a formula which was left half done. This was circulated to all the schools throughout the world. My daughter came and showed me the formula, I took one look at it and told her the answer is equivalent to Pythagoras's theorem. She laughed at me. I then proved it to her by calculation. She still didn't believe me. Well nine months later we read in the newspaper, that some guy in the States after years of research and with a fat book full of calculations had arrived at the same answer. My daughter was bashful. There you have it, what took an mathematics Graduate two years to calculate, took me two hours to work out." - "Philege" Prove this claim. _________________________ "My God, it's full of stars!" -2010 Top

Not at all. It needs just definitions, which are known to anybody who attended the first lecture on probability theory.So, what is your answer?e s Top

Absolutely it has more to do with specialized training than intelligence. Knowing definitions IS specialized training, but even this is only part of the problem.As you have already posted the correct answer I can only believe that you found this problem in a book which provided the result for you. It seems unlikely in the extreme that you could have figured it out yourself. Top
