1/2, by definition. It's a fair coin tossed once. The fact that you get asked once or twice has no bearing in that probability.
>>
For it to be 1/3, there necessarily has to be another random element in the problem. For example, the coin gets tossed a second time if it comes up tails, and if it lands on heads she gets asked on Monday and on tails she gets asked on Tuesday. It's a retarded question for this reason. There is no specification whether there is a second random element dictating the odds of being asked on Monday or Tuesday. If you assume that element exists, then yeah it's 1/3. If you assume there is not a second random element, then it's 1/2.
>>
>>12969768
If you want to solve probabilistic misleading riddles don't use conditioning, instead ask yourself things like "what if I do it one billion times". Here, by assuming there is a way to drug the girl so that the experiment works (and that she's immortal, so the game lasts 1 billion weeks) we can quantify things. What are the rules? 1st rule set: Does the lady wins one penny every time she gives the correct answer? 2nd rule set: Does she earns one penny every week she has given the correct answer at least once?

In one case the halfer point of view gives the correct assessment of the game, and in the other it is the thirder which also gives the proper strategy to maximize gains.

hey /sci/

i've asked /out/ and /an/ but they were no help. let's see how smart /sci/ is

so i love listening to crickets in the evening, my yard has always had them but for the last 3 years, they seem to have disappeared. no change in vegetation or anything. maybe its just part of the insect extinction in progress.

so how do i attract crickets to my yard? google is no help, it just warns not to buy them from pet stores and release them in the wild, as they may be an invasive species.

Talk to an entomologist in your local biology institute (if you have one) and ask them where did all the crickets go too. Pesticides, invasive species, climate change etc. all affect the entire generations of these insects. They are bound to appear again some other time, though. You might just have to wait.

>>12972429
>>12972430
Don't listen to these retards. Most of those eggs sold in pet stores are imported from other countries and they aren't local species. They can turn invasive very quickly and wipe out the local crickets.

Why is the average penis size where it is at when, anatomically speaking, a bigger penis feels better and has a greater chance making a girl orgasm? Also, women report their preference to be above-average too.

heres another
>blacks are too dumb to waste a dozen years of their early adulthood and several hundred thousand on getting a piece of paper which says they are smart
maybe they have confidence in their thinking abilities based on something other than their ability to regurgitate indoctrination from a textbook or maybe blacks are just happy being "too dumb" to buy a phd

no amount of intentionally misleading infographics will ever convince me that whites are superior until i see some smart behavior from whites with my own two eyes, as it stands presently, blacks seem smarter than whites do.

No, what I think you're saying is a misinterpretation of the midwit theory. I think the dumbest people are the midwits and through sheer force of numbers, the midwits are able to mischaracterize as unintelligent some, but not all, of the more intelligent people that the midwits envy and fear. The people who escape mischaracterization are people like Thomas Edison, who go to lengths to ingratiate themselves to the midwits as a means to an end.
Edison was already wealthy & successful on his own when he decided to go get a university degree, Edison didn't want to offend all the wealthy powerful people with degrees by outsmarting them, so he spent some time at Carnegie Melon or Case Western "earning" a sheepskin to disguise his lone wolf look.

They try and sanitize the pedagogy early on, so you have no idea what calculus and linear algebra are good for, especially in CS.
That, and the fact that calc 2 is the first STEM weed out course, it's not uncommon to see a lot of CS majors appreciate math late into their career. I think this is why it's really important for CS departments to actually motivate the theory they teach.

I want to laugh at many CS majors for not being able to do basic calculus, but the sad truth is that a lot of CS departments don't do enough to show how calculus is used in things *as mundane as* analyzing an algorithm or solving some classic problems from other fields of science using computers in a clever way. Unironically, I think if they added a class called "theoretical tools and their applications" to the CS canon, where they taught hardline uses of generating functions, correlation inequalities, spectral graph theory, vector calculus, and Fourier transforms (hell, those are even used in the discrete boolean setting), I think CS majors might *groan* but would be unable to say the "yawn, where is this useful?" That, and they'd scoff less at the calculus because it actually matters.
>>
>>12969530
Yeah what you said is true. But a professor in my dept told me that there is a real pressure from industry on schools to make CS courses focus more on "code" and "problem solving".
And a lot of the students want to code things like games and software don't help.
Making a mandatory theory course and their applications in CS would be good but there has to be someone who is a big deal in the field to start it first.
