    Sceptical, you spout daily rehashed tripe about the EU and the doom that lies ahead, so I would be interested in testing just how logical your brain is and whether it is indicative of your remain mindset to be able to work out simple logic questions or if it is simply beyond you.

    A simple question Sceptical, no tricks or silly terminology that hugs used about plugs not being put in baths etc. I’ve tried to keep it as simple as possible and on the theme of jc as many seem to log in inebriated. I’d appreciate letting our Mr logic EU man Sceptical answer first before anyone else does

    A barman has three small objects (counters)  , 2 are white and one is black. The barman places each individual counter under one beer mat so there are three beer mats (opaque) with a single counter under each one. A customer walks into the pub and the barman asks him to guess which of the 3 beermats the black counter is under. The customer picks mat A, the barman then states he is going to remove a white counter from either mat B or C and the mat that covers it  leaving two beer mats left – the one the customer originally chose and another one that may have a black or white counter under it.

    Statistically in percentage terms, with two mats remaining, what are the chances of the customer picking a black counter from his original choice and would his chances of probability change in finding the black counter  if he changed his pick to the one remaining beer mat?

    TYT old boy, we’re all waiting

    To quote the immortal mister q, how many camels does it take to eat three beer mats?

    so as usual, you fail to answer a question posed to you and go off at a tangent avoiding it.. can you provide an answer or not?

    #1111291

    I’ve been clear with the question  so there is no reason for you not to answer other than not knowing or being afraid to give the wrong answer. As you have seen the question, you have till the close of business today ( 5pm) to show you have a basic grasp of probability and are capable of discussing topics like Brexit from a reasonable basis of intelligence.

    Whats this got do with the EU or camels?

    Are you stuck on your homework again? I think your goating him!!

    Derren brown explained the maths on his version of this – I CBA to google it but its genuine 0.33 chance the 1st pic – and depending if you consider the events seperate or combined the odds are 0.5 or less. Something like this, anyways this is about as relevant as Mr Q`s sprockets.

    There is no mention of camels other than from Sceptical.. don’t come on trolling threads as usual Ruthless. I know you’re too thick to provide answer so I’m waiting for the board preacher to furnish one or fail to, rendering his EU posts unfit for purpose with no basic grasp of probability talking about doomsday scenarios of leaving the EU

    Wrong answer and no wonder you have to use google, you can barely string a coherent sentence together.. nice try tho

    Ge

    I was going to say similar to Ruthless and without googling I would now say, if 77 Russian camels walk 23 miles, up and down a high rise apartment building and each floor is 12 loves of bread, Theresa May will call off Brexit and 278 small seashells will be eaten by ravenous Remainers?

     

    Am I right?

    2 wrong answers , anyone else? It’s GCSE level mathematical probability and no one should need google or to think too hard about it.
