Re: Are probabilities static

This not a reply but a question about the OP.

**What is a **__four sided__ die?

I have seen that three times lately.

But I have no idea what it means.

Re: Are probabilities static

It is shaped like a pyramid, i use it in Dungeons and Dragons. (Giggle)

The discussion i was in started with a 4 sided die, but i would have used it in my question regardless because the beginning math was easy for me, you know 25% and whatnot.(Thinking)

Thanks for the reply.

Are they are numbered $\displaystyle \{1,2,3,4\}~?$

There is really not way to answer your OQ.

I know of no studies to indicate that any dice change over time.

Re: Are probabilities static

I did a little research off site and I am a little confused. My initial research lead me to something called Gambler's Fallacy. Which stated that the idea that a given result is "due" based on the previous results of an event is not true, because the results are independent of one another.

Then I googled independent probabilities and found that if multiple events occur at the same time the probability of a singular result drops.

In the example above if i rolled two 4 sided dice at the same time the probability of the same number appearing on each dice diminishes. Why wouldn't it be 25%, and if it does work that way, why wouldn't gamblers fallacy be gamblers rule?(Drunk)

I'm sorry if I am wasting your time, I am just trying to better understand what is going on with the math.(Worried)
