    Probability pattern

    Was given 5 sets of numbers to find the pattern of the problem. 20 numbers that have being picked out 80 numbers (1 to 80)

    1. 7, 26, 3, 46, 55, 65, 69, 42, 4, 80, 27, 6, 34, 53, 67, 9, 38, 23, 61, 2

    2. 60, 15, 2, 55, 29, 74, 37, 18, 79, 57, 34, 12, 27, 70, 49, 64, 41, 40, 63, 50

    3. 73, 56, 76, 33, 53, 57, 54, 72, 23, 6, 62, 52, 58, 15, 29, 7, 65, 66, 17, 48

    4. 13, 38, 20, 65, 39, 52, 40, 78, 25, 67, 59, 15, 37, 74, 29, 19, 50, 32, 57, 46

    5. 36, 24, 2, 12, 80, 50, 35, 4, 34, 42, 71, 40, 55, 30, 53, 29, 20, 61, 46, 8

    I'm still working on it. But would appreciate it if someone could solve before hand

    Re: Probability pattern

    It was given to us from the professor. We asked him if it was possible to find a binary code from a computer generating random numbers.

    Let's see you asked the Prof. if it were possible to do A, He gave you some examples to try for yourselves, and you ask us?

    Without more information the answer is almost certainly no.
