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.
First let me apologize for my ignorance, what i mean is i am not even sure if i am wording the question properly and my math is, um.. ..average at best.
Second let me apologize for repeating a thread, or placing it in the wrong place, there are so many.
Lastly let me apologize for any social or grammatical errors not covered in the first 2 apologies.
Ok, I wanted to know if probabilities can increase or decrease over time. Assuming i am using an honest 4 sided dice. If i roll it once and it results in a 1, will rolling the same dice again with no environmental changes result in the same probability of yielding a 1. And then if i roll it again, and so-on and so-on, will the probability of rolling a 1 stay the same every time.
It is shaped like a pyramid, i use it in Dungeons and Dragons.
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.
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?
I'm sorry if I am wasting your time, I am just trying to better understand what is going on with the math.
